Long vs short names
We are trying to narrow down the list of potential names for our new arrival, but I am a bit torn. The name we both like is technically a shortening of a longer name but we are not that keen on the longer full Name.
Part of me things just call them the short name we like but part of me thinks we should give them a more sensible full narme that sounds better if they want to be a doctor or prime minister.
does this matter or am I being a bit old fashioned and short sighted about the effect of a name?
