I agree, don't get hung up on nicknames. I was worried about DS not having one (Dane) but you come up with some. We call him Daner, Rooski, and DH calls him Spuds My dad calls me Bear. We call my DD Peanut and Bean. Lots of random nn's at my house.
I keep looking through all these names to see if I can get any ideas. We still are stuck on names. This time isn't as easy with the 3rd!
With that said for girls I like, Tiffany, Lauren, Nicole, Makenzie, and cannot figure out a boys name.
