What boy names can you think of that would work with the nn Van? Do you think Van can stand alone?

I like Van a lot and am thinking about it as a first name but moreso as a nn. The only name I like that I could use the nn Van is Sullivan. Any other ideas?

Donovan is the only other one that immediately comes to mind. I agree, I like it better as a nn than as the full name.

Donovan and Vance immediately came to mind. (I like Vance better!)

I like your idea of Sullivan... I would have never thought to use Van as a NN.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my siggy!

I like Vance with a nn Van.
But, I think that Van could stand alone as a first name also.

I too think Van can stand on its own, but I like Vance best as a formal name.

I like Sullivan and Vance best as possible full names for Van.

Vance was what popped in my mind first though I think Van might be able to stand on its own too. Wasnt there a movie called Van Wilder and Van was his first name?
