JL sounds like jail -- not a good idea.
John Lawrence is a lovely name. Is there some reason you don’t want to call him John?

You can call him Jay or Larry from his middle name also depending on the last name you can call him by his int example last name Thomas call him J.T. Hope this helps

If you like Johnny.... then name him John and nickname him Johnny. :o)

My husband is John Francis, we’ve just alway called him John. His mom calls him Boo, though; it’s her baby nick-name for him that she still uses out of habit. It’s very cute too since he’s about 6 feet tall roughly 200lbs and he gets this really soft look about his eyes when she calls him that. Sorry to ramble. My point though is that nicknames can come from something other then your baby’s fn. I call our 3 yr old, Henry, Pumpkin all the time.

How cute!

I think Lawrence John would be cool -- you hardly ever hear someone named Lawrence anymore and it is such a superb name. But then, you hardly hear any young people being named John, either. Both choices are really nice. You’re so fortunate that the fathers aren’t named Hurley and Bubba.

If you’re using the grandfathers’ names, then you’re skipping a generation in naming (twice over!) and you have good reason to call him Skip or Skipper. As a nickname, I mean -- NOT as his given name.

I prefer Johnny. Its a cool and relaxed name, and Jack is cute too. But Johnny gets my vote.

I like previous poster’s take on "Skipping" a generation and therefore granting him the nn Skip or Skipper. Very cute.
