The baby name that got away….what did you nearly call your child? Rss

Tell us the names that you shortlisted and why you went with the one you did!
I wanted to call my son Tobias James but my partner wouldn't let me and everyone I told said "Oh no, don't call him that, people will call him Toby for short and that's a dog's name" I also got told not to use the middle name James because then he would be TJ and that's too gangster for a child, he will be likely to get into more trouble with a nickname like TJ. Family/friends can interfere way too much sometimes.
We ended up going with Charlie James which was second choice on my list. People were still all worried about him being called CJ but I don't care. It is probably actually a good thing we went with Charlie instead because a while ago a friend had a boy and called him Toby so win/win I guess.
