What initial is your surname?
Middle name in mind?
Figure out what names may spell something you would rather they didn't?
Or ones that could be a nn?
Do you like nn at all?
Personally all my dc have names that can't be shortened.

Robin / Robyn. Done

Jj2431 Fri 25-May-18 16:45:22

I prefer names that can be shortened as I like using Nicknames. Unsure on middle names. Possibly a family name but we both have so many to choose from we just don't know. Surname begins with R

Jj2431 Fri 25-May-18 16:47:00

But I would definitely make an exception for the ones on my list. smile
