I’ve posted about this in the past, so some of you may remember, but I’ve adored the name Acheron (ack-uh-ron), with the nickname Ash, for a while now, but I’d sort of half-convinced myself it was too weird and have been trying to get myself to love other names that could have Ash as a nickname instead (I kind of hate both Asher and Ashton, though, so that’s not going well).
But I recently learned that one of my friends has a little cousin named Acheron, and hearing it actually used on a real person instead of online or on a fictional character made me super excited and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. And hearing someone other than me saying it out loud! So now I’m in love with the name all over again.
What do you guys think? My favorite combination for it right now is Acheron James; what do you think of that? Other suggestions?
Still kind of too weird/unusual/hard to pronounce or spell? Or do you think it could be okay? Does having a pretty not-bizarre nickname help? What about other ideas to get the nickname Ash?
