Jodie and Drew were expecting their second child, and Jodie wrote in the blog looking for a vintage style name that didn’t have an obvious nickname. They had a good name list, but Jodie could see potential problems with almost all their favourite names.
In the end, Jodie and Drew had a son, and named him
a brother for their daughter Audrey.
Although Jodie wasn’t sure about the nickname Archie, it’s been more than a year now and so far nobody has called their son Archie. Jodie knows that might change when Archer starts school though.
Congratulations to Jodie and Drew! Usually it makes sense to go with your favourite name, even if it has a few potential issues. Most of the time the problem never comes up, or isn’t such a big deal after all.
