Elizabeth? vs. Yes vs. No

I like Elizabeth for my baby girl, but I’m concerned b the numerous nicknames. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just that I prefer Elizabeth as a name on its own - I think the nicknames kind of spoil it. How do I stop people from shortening Elizabeth to Libby, Lizzie, Betsy, Bess, etc? Or should I go with a much shorter name with no nicknames? I also like Alice and Grace. Should I go with one of these or stick with Elizabeth?

Genie's Mailbag

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
