I'm surprised no one has mentioned Big Nate, a comic strip and book series by Lincoln Pierce.

I named my son Nathanael from the bible. Not knowing the meaning at the time but when I found out I was pregnant I announced that it was my gift from God, which is the meaning.. gift from God. We all call him Nate the great or NaterGater! He has very strong beliefs and is very stubborn but very loving funny and sweet. He is 22 and the older he gets the more loving he is!

A nickname best suited to effeminate, prissy men like Nate Ruess.

I don't like this as a given name. It reminds me of the annoying Nate Berkus, who I hate with a flaming passion. On the plus side, there's Nate Ruess, whose music I love, plus Nate is the name of one of my favorite Pokemon characters.

I have a friend named Nathalie and we all call her Nate. So this can also be a female pet name.

Nate was given to 101 baby boys born in the US in 2012 as a full name. I'd say just stick to Nathan, it sounds a lot more dignified and intelligent and won't sound weird on an older man. And you can always call him Nate if you want to.

I like Nathan, but I have never met an intelligent Nate. Never.

Nate Myles (b. 1985), Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Sydney Roosters.

Australia is the only country where Nate is a top 100 name. It has a similar popularity to Nathan, and is far more popular than Nathaniel.

A name short for Nathan or Nathaniel and has Hebrew origins meaning "Gift of God".

I absolutely love this name. I first heard it on "Oprah"! If I have another son, this will be his name - although I have to convince my hubby as he doesn't like it! It is a very strong name & I don't see the point in naming a child Nathan or Nathaniel if you are going to shorten it anyway.
