Congratulations on your baby news
and if you are looking for cute baby names
that can be abbreviated you have come to the right place. In the office, we love these shortened versions of great names and we are delighted to share our favourites with you. We have compiled 30 boy and girl names
to give you as many options as possible so all you need to worry about is getting your baby’s birth cert.
- Michael - Mick, Mickey, Micky or Mike are a few cool options for this traditionally popular name.
- Robert - Rob, Robbie, Bob or Bobby are a cute twist on a strong name for a boy. We personally love Bobby in the office!
- Benjamin – Ben, Benny, Benjy or Benjie give the name Benjamin so many choices that it may be hard to choose one abbreviation. However, we think Ben is perfect.
- Matthew – Matt or Matty are good names for boys, you may find yourself jumping between Matt or Matty, but we have to say Matt is a super name.
- Emmanuel - Manu, Manuel offer a great twist on the more traditional names and we love Manu.
- Anthony - Anto, Anton, Tony or Ant make Anthony an ideal choice if you aren’t sure of what abbreviated version you love – people may choose for you and it will stick to your new son.
- David – Davie, Davy or Dave are all cool names for boys and David has always been popular on baby name lists.
- Declan – Dec or Deccy are good names too but we must admit we think this is a good name for twin boys – don’t forget Ant!
- William - Will, Bill or Billy are still as popular as ever – thanks to Prince William.
- Oliver – Ollie is super cute, need we say more?
- Kezmond - Kez or Kezzy are genuinely unique but who doesn’t want a different name anyway?
- Zachariah - Zac, Zach or Zachy is a lovely name - we like it a lot!
- Richard - Richie, Ricky, Rick and Rich.
- James - Jamie or Jay are sweet names.
- Samson or Samuel – Sam or Sammy.
- Olivia – Livvy or Liv are lovely short names for Olivia, but we love all three.
- Isabelle - Izzy, Belle and Bell scream beauty for your tiny daughter.
- Andrea - Andy, Annie or Drea are lovely and we have to say Andy for a girl has its appeal.
- Nicola/Nicole - Nick, Nicci, Nicki or Nic.
- Debra - Deb or Debbie are wonderful names too.
- Kimberly - Kim, Kimmy, Kimmie are names that are sugar sweet, ideal for any little girl.
- Julianne - Jules, Julia, Julie or Anne, we have to say Jules wins for us as we adore it.
- Esmerelda - Esme, Merelda are so different and if you are looking for a unique name, this is for you.
- Joanne/Joanna - Jo, Joey, Anne/Anna.
- Alexis - Alex, Alexi or Lexi or Lexis are stunning though Lexi gets our vote.
- Katherine – Kat, Katy, Katie or Kathy are a nice way to bring Katherine up to date and you can always spell it with a C if you prefer?
- Danielle - Dani or Danni or Dan, perhaps this is our Love Island obsession, but we couldn’t love Dani anymore right now!
- Jennifer - Jen, Jenn, Jenny.
- Rebecca - Becca, Bec, Becky are uber cool names!
- Alison – Ali or Ally depending on your personal choice of spelling.
