    Default What do you think of this name for a boy?

    What do people think of the name Tavvy for a boy? I've never heard of it until I was reading my new book today (lady midnight by cassandra claire) and I really like it, so does hubby. In the book it's short for Octavian which I don't like. What are some other names it could be lengthened to as I'm worried it might sound too babyish for an adult?
    The middle name would Raymond as its my late grandpa's name so no matter what first name we choose thwt will be the middle name.
    And my son's name is Hudson so it needs to flow well with that.
    Thanks!

    P.s
    We don't even know what we're having yet so I might be getting a little ahead of myself here 😂

    Or what about Taavi? Pronounced "Tah-viy"? Similar to tavvy but maybe not as cutesie sounding?

    I don't mind it actually.

    Tavenner, Taveon...

    I know a girl who called her son Tavian. Maybe you could use that and still have Tavvy as a nn?

    I do like Tavian just unsure whether it goes with my son's name Hudson. Hubby is really keen on Taavi

    It's not my cup of tea, but I mostly like classic names.

    Tarvey is another possible spelling option if you decide to go with it (as it's pronounced the same as Harvey).

    Nup, not a fan. (But do our opinions really matter?)

    I think any two names will sound fine/normal together if they are said together often enough

    I'm personally not keen on Taavi (I think it's the spelling more than the pronunciation) but it doesn't really matter what I think if you love it!
