Re: Name my baby!

I don't care for Sam. But we don't really shorten any of our kid's names and it hasn't been an issue. Usually it seems like people just follow your lead in that department.

Both my girls have 3 syllable names and neither have ever went by a nn. Only one nurse at our old office tried to call Cynthia ,Cindy. Cynthia didnít even look up Lol.

Re: Name my baby!

I do like Samuel Scott. Not sure if I want to use it there or save it to go with Matthew because I've always loved it with Matthew. There's nothing like planning for future names of 'possible' children while planning for current ones lol.

I talked to my brother and he doesn't care at all if we use Samuel! So that is a very strong candidate at this point. DH and I both like it a lot. And I may use Scott with it. But any other suggestions for middles to go with it? I'm thinking a one syllable something would be good...that would balance nicely I think since first would have two and our last name has three.

I use Jen for myself and am ok with that, but never Jenny. It's never been an issue. I think people just follow whatever the family uses. Most of our kids names don't shorten easily, but even the ones that do we've just never shortened.

Re: Name my baby!

The first thing that came to mind when you said 1 syllable middle name was Samuel Roy.
