      Hi, Carter. You and your son have a great name but it’s one of those that don’t lend themselves to the short form. You could use your initials, C.J., or C + whatever the initial of the real middle names are.

      Cartman would actually be a great nickname for Carter but the person decided to use it would have to be a Southpark fan because that’s the association nowadays.

    Help me find a nickname for me
