I’m due with a boy next month and DH wants to name for a relative he was close with named Pesach.

I don’t love love how it sounds. What nicknames or names could we add to make it sound better?

I’d come up with an unrelated nickname
Especially because pessy is a girls name

Psachi is usually for Psachya but I think it could be short for Pesach as well.

Hate paci. I’d rather call him Pesach.

Can you call him by his middle name?

I'm wracking my brain, and I can't come up with one good nickname for Pesach. I mean, phonetically you could try and call him Zach, but everyone will assume that's for Zachariah.

I can only imagine shortening to Pei, or Pace (which is kind of cool). Pacey sounds a little juvenile or even feminine. I actually think Pesach is a beautiful name. Just don’t anglicize to Passover on the birth certificate Wink.

Sachi
Tzachi is a pretty common nickname (for Betzalel)
This is same but without the T

If you give him a second name like yosef you can call him PJ ;-)
I have a Pesach with another name that makes a really cute nickname but I can't write it here cause then people would know who I am
The name is way more common then you think.

There was a Pacey on Dawson’s Creek which normalised it at the time but unfortunately by now probably nobody remembers that show anymore

Meh. Give the kid an English name or a second name and find a nickname for that. It’s still special to name after the relative even if you don’t call by the name.

We were also going to name for a Pesach if we'd had a boy. I planned on calling him Sachi. It sounds cute to me although not easy to say for not frum family or anyone outside of the frum community really. But I still think Sachi is cute! Maybe a second name is your best bet. Or one of those little nicknames that come from initials or sibling and just seem to stick, unrelated to official name.

we had the same issue, we ended up calling him by an additional name as well. But Sachy (maybe spelt Tzachi) is cute.

Pesach is a family name by us. We all use the name and call them Pesach. Some of us spell it Paysach though. It sounds so mature and dignified. I don't know if its the name, but one Pesach is sweeter and refined than the next, at least the ones I know! Bshaa tova!

I like Pace as a legal name/nickname but couldn't use it for various reasons. I call my son Pesach and love it!
Didn't even think of Sachi but it is also really cute!

LOL I'm old enough that I watched Dawson's Creek when it originally aired and every time I met a Pacey, nicknamed for Pesach, I thought of Joshua Jackson.

Pesach was a family name in my family too, I have a cousin named Pacey (pronounced Pay - see) and another one named for Pesach goes by his initials our English name. Neither uses the full name.

How about Aviv (or Avi) since Pesach is chag ha-aviv. That's what I thought the title meant: alternative names for the chag. Zman cherutenu and chag hamatzot don't lend themselves quite so well to application to a human.
