Nickname For vs. Nephew

Let’s say your sister who you love just had a baby who you love so much. She named him Joseph James and although you like James, you can’t stand Joseph. To make matters worse, she nicknamed him Joe, a name you have a hard time calling a little boy by. You want to give him a nickname, so you call him JJ, James, Jimmy, and Hudson (Hudson is your favorite name that your husband won’t let you use.) Your sister has a block against JJ and Hudson and doesn’t really appreciate you telling people that his name is anything but Joseph or Joe. What do you do?
Which baby name is best?

Genie's Mailbag

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
