What to Remember When Choosing a Name with a Nickname

 

Remember, if there’s a boy name you like but DON’T like the nickname that you can use for it.  Then just don’t call them by that!

Though it may not stop other people from using it (especially if it’s a name that can be shortened into many different names like Johnathan) if you don’t like it you absolutely do NOT have to use it.

It’s not law and not required that you must use it if you have that name.

Just use what you like and what feels right to you!
