    I prefer Charlie. But I’ve heard Chaz more than Chase as a shortening of Charles.

    I think Charlie is best.  I also like Chase but don’t really see that as a nickname to Charles.

    My brother’s name is Charles (named after my dad and grandpa) and we have always called him Chase! I think it’s a great nickname. I hardly even consider it anick name for my brother as that’s just who he is. I would feel weird calling him charlie or Charles.

    I prefer Chase just because as he gets older it would be more professional in a work place than Charlie, but both are cute.

    I think Charlie is great.  And I think it would be easy enough to say that you want baby to have a different nickname from your hubby so they each have their own name/identity, esp at family gatherings.  Seems super logical to me.  This is coming from a girl who has the same name (first and last) as my SIL, and it’s a little odd to deal with at family events sometimes.

    He could also be a Junior?

    fwiw, as he gets older (think college), I could totally see Tupper being shortened to Tup as a hanging out with the boys nickname too.

    I voted Charlie because other than Chuck that’s the only nickname I’ve heard for Charles; however, I do prefer Chase over Chuck. If you prefer Chase, just call him Chase from get go, nobody will ever think ‘that’s not a nickname for Charles’ – it’ll just be who he is. Side note, nicknames aren’t always logical. For example, how the heck do you get Peggy out of Margaret (pretty common in past generations).

    I wouldn’t be okay with Chucky, either, BUT I agree with

    @mightywombat: if the grandparents insist, then let it be their special nickname for me. Really, they’ll probably call him whatever they want, anyway, and if his parents are anything like my parents it won’t matter what you say, they’ll do what they want.

    stand strong. this is your baby! your baby, your rules. i would even be so bold as to correct them when they call him chuck! seriously. have his name on things as charlie. at some point it will just seem weird for them to call him chuck.

    i personally never understand the idea of using a generational name. my SO’s bro is a jr and it makes things so much harder. the mail is always mixed up- and his bro is in his 40s & hasn’t lived at home in a lifetime. one is always little chuck or big chuck. i would think your hubby would see these issues since he doesn’t have his own name.
