DS 2 due in three weeks. DS one is Oliver. We had a name picked out but have recently had a 4d scan and he doesn't look like the name we picked so I am having a wobble. Any suggestions of traditional names that can be shortened to nice abbreviations. Thanks in advance.

Oops, Richard's nickname is not a good one, sorry.
But Theodore can be Ted, Teddy, Theo.
My son is Teddy at home with US family, Theo here.
Henry is Hal or Harry or in the US, Hank. Hank.grin

Really? Do tiny babies really look like any name?!

How about Alexander (Alex), Dominic (Dom), Quentin (Quinn) or Edward (Ed)?
