Sometimes there's nothing quite like a short, sweet and simple name. Loaded with elegance, punch and pizzazz, a 3-letter name can be just the ticket for those with longer, ornate surnames.
We've put together a list of the very best, most usable 3-letter names for boys. Many of these are nicknames for longer names, so you'll be able to get away with a longer first name on the birth certificate while reverting to the nickname for every day use.
Or simply use the nickname on the birth certificate - lots of people are doing it. See if there's one that takes your fancy, for your little son-to-be.
