If your son's name is Isaac....

Does he have any nicknames? Do you mind sharing?

DH and I have long ago decided that if we have a son his name will be Isaac Wayne. My only hang up with this name choice is what nicknames can you use with Isaac?

Thanks!

Re: If your son's name is Isaac....

Our older son's name is Isaac. I'd thought about the nickname thing. We call him Isaac or some other random nicknames that have nothing to do with his name. Although, sometimes I just call him "I."

I have heard some Isaac's be nicknamed zac, Ike, even Iz.

His brother's name is Eli (not Elijah.). So, we picked names that aren't great for nicknames/shortening. HOwever, again, they have tons of random nicknames that aren't related to their names. I do sometimes call the baby "E" though.

I don't have a son but I do have a MUCH younger brother named Isaac and we call him "I" and Jazmyne calls him "Zaac"

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

I have an Isaac...I guess it's a personal choice, but he doesn't have a nickname. Why do you need a nickname for a name as simple as Isaac?

I understand though, I'm a HUGE nn person. If there's not a nn for it, I'll make one up. Isaac is awesome without a nn, but if I had an Isaac I'd call him something else as well. I'm sure it's just for the mom to use, she won't introduce him as I-zacky.

I don't NEED one, we are def. going to use Isaac, I just wish there was a nn I liked!


Like, my niece Brianna she has a nice short name, but we all call her Bri & her siblings call her Bri-Bri. With Isaac, you got not much to work with!

Add in that we're using Wayne (family name) as a middle name & there's no hope for a name-related nickname. We could always call him Bubba or Buck or something like that, I guess! (The dog is already nn Buddy, so that one's out!) I think my Dad would get a kick out of it if we called our kid Bubba--that's what he used to call his buddies in the navy!
