These days it’s almost impossible to have a completely original, unheard of name for your child that hasn’t already been used hundreds of times. As parents, of course you want your child to stand out from the multiple other “Johns” in the world. This is why having a nickname for your child can become very powerful and help them to stand apart in a crowd. Some nicknames come about as a sort of variation from their full name or even simpler, just their initials. Oftentimes, a nickname is inadvertently given because of something your child did, like a sound they made or an expression on their face. However your child’s nickname is chosen, I suggest creating one before their friends have a chance to do it for you. You may not be so happy with what they come up with!
