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

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
