Why does this name need a nickname? It’s a beautiful name. Don’t change it.

Eli, Elky, or Kenny all sound like nice nicknames.

Try coming up with a nickname for Yocheved. It's impossible!

The most "regular" sounding nickname would be Eli . But I agree that elkanah is a beautiful name

Yocheveds where I am are always call Cheved or Chevy... Elkanas are Kanis (pronounced Kuni). Not every name needs a nickname

I tried that, and people said "Yucky?" Chevy sounds like "Heavy". It's a tough one!
