Gil or Ian I guess. I would think he would go by Gillian mainly though unless you wanted a nn since it isn't a long name.

He takes her from the home she knows to lands of which are new. Survival is an unknown place, becomes her test of truth. Her burdens of many and his tanks sometimes are small. She keeps her faith through thick and thin and makes the best of all. She lives with some uncertainty, knows not what dawn may bring, but he knows nothing stops his girl from doing anything. Whether star or stripe or bar adorns his collar or his strife, nothing means more to a soldier than the one he calls his wife.

I really like the name. I would think most would try to shorten it to (J)ill. I think NN are really determined by the parent. My mom never wanted me called Missy when I was growing up and she corrected people, so no one called me that name. Of course kids will be kids and call them what they want but really the parent can try to control it.

Jill, Jilly, ian, etc.

But - as an "Angela" my mom was worried that id be called "Angie" - never have been called angie. My mom would correct anyone who did, and just as a result, I always refused to be called angie. Never had much of a problem.

I wouldn't think the nick name would go farther than Gill.
He is worried spelling Gillian with a G rather than a J, she would be called gilligan.
Myself I realy don't see this but.....

True! Parents can control it for the most part!
