nickname ideas

Hi everyone, my boyfriend and I just found out we are expecting our first baby. It was a complete shock as we were in the ER for another health issue I was having when we found out. However, we are so excited for this new adventure and can't wait to see our little peanut. We have discussed some baby names in the past, but still need some advice. If its a boy he will be named after my boyfriend and his father, so it will be John Edward. I' am not a huge fan of naming a baby after someone else or the name John for that matter, but this is very important to my boyfriend. So I' m trying to come up with some nicknames from this name. Since he would be the third we have talked about Trey, but once again I'm not really sold on this. If anyone had any ideas I would love to hear them!!!

The first thing to pop to mind was Jed.

Well, Jack has long been a nn for John. That would work well for you!
Jed is kinda neat too, that is a nice idea.

JT is another nn, but unless you are willing to use a T mn it wouldn't work for you.

Jonas, Jonah or even Jones could be nn's I think.

My first thought was Jed also. I think it's adorable. Congrats on your pregnancy!

Hi there.

John Edward is not my favorite either, but it's still a very nice classic.
