I was once near this kids play area and I heard a mother yell out "Galileo!  Galileo!  Come on, it's time to go home!"

I thought that was very cool but also very funny, which I guess is the trade off for many of these suggestions.

@UltrasonicBill: Ceres Taylor, pronounced with a soft C, of course...

If we are opting for no middle name, then Eustace Taylor would lend itself to an "E-T" nickname...

Ceres Taylor, pronounced with a soft C, of course. Especially effective in last name first listings.

3-Letter Nicknames

With regard to Elizabeth Simon's suggestion of "Beulah Louise Taylor," which woudl lend itself to the nickname "B-L-T" -- yesterday evening I did a search of 3-letter words ending in 'T' and came up with the following list:

Act, Aft, Ait, Alt, Ant, Apt, Art, Att, Bat, Bet, Bit, Bot,But, Cat, Cot, Cut, Dit, Dot, Eat, Eft, Fat, Fet, Fit, Gat, Get, Git, Got, Gut, Hat, Het, Hit, Hot, Hut, Jet, Jot, Jut, Kat, Kit, Lat, Let, Lit, Lot, Mat, Met, Mot, Mut, Net, Nit, Not, Nut, Oat, Oft, Oot, Opt, Ort, Out, Pat, Pet, Pht, Pit, Pot, Pst, Put, Qat, Rat, Ret, Rot, Rut, Sat, Set, Sit, Sot, Tat, Tet, Tit, Tot, Tut, Vat, Vet, Wat, Wet, Wit, Wot, Yet, Zit

So a name like "Jebediah Eujene Talyor" would lend itself to a nickname of "Jet," which has a zippy sound to it, but we should probably stay away from unfortunate offerings like "Zebediah Isambard Talyor"

Not the least that "B-L-T" would make a great nickname

@ Max Now I do like "Irmgard Taylor" ... that has a certain something about it.

Now why did I think that you would choose that one...

I think "Beulah Louise Taylor" also has a certain something about it.

Of course, saddling a kid with one of these names might just turn them off to engineering completely.

@Anteleluvian: ...saddle the kid with a name guaranteed to incite parental hatred...

Oooh -- "Tiberius Tintinnabulation Taylor"

This would lend itself to the nickname "T-Cubed"

really doesn't "ring my bell," as it were.

Well if you really want to saddle the kid with a name guaranteed to incite parental hatred how about "Tintinnabulation Taylor". That certainly has a ring (pun intended) to it. Could be shortened to "TinTin" which could be boy/girl and has comic-book hero overtones

 

And "Hidden Figures"- not yet seen.

@Antedeluvian: ...all mentioned in "Hidden Figures"

I haven't see that film yet, but it's right up there at the top of my "want to see" list -- have you seen it? If so, what did you think?

@Elizabeth: I'm a huge fan of all these lady engineers, but you have to think how the name will sound (a) in the context of a modern audience and (b) when combined with the "Taylor" family name.

For example, "Edith Taylor" really doesn't "ring my bell," as it were.

Now I do like "Irmgard Taylor" ... that has a certain something about it.
