Are you stressed, busy, leading a hectic lifestyle? Too time-poor to keep saying a full name every day? Then you need … a nickname for your child! A nickname can shave valuable seconds off each day, saving you minutes every year. Minutes you can productively spend saying, “No that’s his full name”. (Unless you’ve picked a pet form which is the same length as the original name, in which case no time will be saved).
