So DH and I have a few names we both like, although for each one of us likes it much more than the other of us. I finally found a name we both really like BUT neither of us like the "shortened" version (think Samuel/Sam, Zachary/Zack, etc). We can only control what WE call him but who knows what will happen with family and once he gets in school.
Do you think this is reason enough to not use a name you otherwise love? I'm really torn.
