    Default Albert?

    What nickname would you use for a boy named Albert? I like the whole name but am wary of one of the possible nicknames. Given how we Australians love to shorten things I figure you need to like the most likely nicknames too.

    I reckon the ones that will occur during school through mates etc are Al and Bert.

    I wanted to use Albert so much but hubs said no I would have shortened it to Bertie. Went with Ernie instead.

    My grandad and cousin are both called Albert, and both have been called albie all their lives.

    Even my cousin was called this by his school friends at a young age, even though they didn't know what our poppy was called.

    I have heaps of people in my family named Albert. It's a family name. They are all also known as Ap or Appie (pronounced like Up and Uppy). Not entirely sure if it's because the family is Dutch and that's their translation of the name.

    My youngest was going to be Albert because I love the names Albie and Bertie, but his father vetoed it. He is just Albie and his great grandma is calling him Al which is just awful.

    Thanks everyone. I think it's back to the drawing board for me. Albie is the nickname I can't come at because we have a close relative (who I don't really like) who is named Alby. It's a pity because it's actually quite a cute nickname!
