Question about vs. nicknames

My problem isn’t coming up with a fn/mn combo that I love, it’s choosing the nicknames that I love. Most of my favourite names have 2-4 nicknames that I love. Have any of you experienced this same thing? If so, how did you finally decide which nickname to use?

Well, I named my son two names I really love. His first name is short and doesn’t really have nickname options (the only one that was possible he didn’t like), so he went by his first name.
When he grew up, he really did like both names, and started wanting to go by a nickname. My oldest son, a junior, goes by his middle name full time, so he had the idea of going by his. In a whole, there were 4 nickname options that he liked- we let him decide. Through time he went down to 2- the one that sounded ’cooler’ and sounded the best with out surname and another only his siblings were allowed to call him.
And that’s how it is until today.

Try calling him by each nickname and see if you like them. Then, when he’s born or a little older, see which ones fit him the best, which sound the best with your surname... then let him choose.
