"They pronounce in "Nate" like you wouldnt believe..there is no "e" at the end" Dec. 17, 2011:
"I often get the "e" added to the end, but I correct them, and add my own simple IQ test, I tell them, "The 'G' is invisible." When they get it, they never forget my name again. Other than that, it is a very cool unique and real name." Jan. 18, 2011:
"A nickname of mine, from Natania. Some people call me "Nattie," or Ania. I don't think Nat should be a full name, but it's a nice nickname. It's short, and not too common. The only problem is that it often gets confused with "Matt."" Mar. 28, 2009:
"We named our son Nathanael and call him "Nat" or "Natty." This was common in the 19th century (my husband teaches 19th century American Lit., and he suggested this as a duminitive). It took my family some getting used to, and Natty still gets called "Nate" by a lot of people, but we think it's a great, old name and makes a nice match with his older brother, Ted. We are having a hard time coming up with a third name, though!" Mar. 8, 2008:
