Can anyone think of any good nicknames for Hector?

The H Bomb gringringrin

Why do you need a nickname?

I'd say if nothing comes to you intuitively that searching for nickname is bit pretentious

Tor? Hec?

No, sorry I tried and can't. It is an ancestral name that you are expected to use in order to inherit the castle?

Heckythump if you're in Scotland!

Hex? To rhyme with sex? Or hex like a gypsy's curse?! confused

pygmy Sun 12-May-13 12:06:02

I did think Hex, but it means evil spell. I don't feel the need for a nickname, but dp is troubled by the lack of.

My twins are Hector and Arthur. Their brothers call them tractor and trailer.

I've got a Hector. I used to sometimes call him Heckles. Hec or Hect sometimes

There aren't any nice nicknames imo - Heck? Hex? Also, the meaning of hector would put me off.

LondonInHighHeeledBoots Sun 12-May-13 18:39:08

Hex or Tori/Tor. Probably Hex, but I am a bit odd and do love me an 'x' in a name.

And nn's just happen, you don't need an automatic one. You'll probably end up calling him something completely random related to something he did as a toddler anyway.

Cast a spell on; bewitch.

A magic spell; a curse.

verb. bewitch
noun. witch - hag - sorceress

shoobidoo Sun 12-May-13 18:41:48

The german word for witch is Hexe. Guess it comes from Hex.

Exhaustipated Sun 12-May-13 18:43:10

I know one, he is called Hec sometimes...
Don't think there are any really.,

Neither of my DS's nn's have any obvious associations with their names, they just kind of evolved over time. Don't sweat it.

I know a Hector - his nicknames are Hec and Heccie. I think it's a great name!
