Hi, I really need some help!

My son is almost 6 weeks (time really does fly!) and he needs to be registered very soon sad

My favourite name is Leo, but I absolutely love Elliot too. I have heard that people use the NN Leo, for Elliot... What do you think? We could then use both!

So... Elliot (NN Leo) or just Leo?

Just Leo.

It's what DD2 would have been called, if she'd been DS2.

Not sure how you get Leo from Elliot, as there is no Leo sound in Elliot.

But I like both names equally. Leo is probably a bit more popular at the moment, which would swing my vote toward Elliot.

I love Leo. Was our top contender for DC3, but I had a girl.

Another vote for Elliot here smile

Or what about the Spanish Elio? Or you could get Elio as nickname from Elliot for your Leo sound?

Leo on its own.

I can't see how Leo could possibly be a nn for Elliot.

I love the name Elliot. However, it came up in conversation with a friend recently and she did an ET impression angry
Don't think that would put me off though

Leo hands down.

I don't think you can have Elliot nn Leo, they are different names.

Leo (which IMO cannot be a nickname for Elliot).

I do like Elio as suggested above.
