What do you mean by "cute"? (Pretty, for a girl? i.e. Violet?) Or do you want cutesy and trendy? You have to keep in mind that your child isn't going to be a baby forever, and when she's trying to obtain her JD, take the bar and she starts practicing law, a "cute" name isn't going to get her very far and she probably won't be taken seriously. How about a classic, beautiful name? Elizabeth, Emily, or Jane for a girl. You could call her Liz or Lizzie, Emmy or Janie until she grows up and decides she wants to lose the cute nickname. If you give her a cute permanent name, the only way she can lose it is to change it legally. For a boy, Matthew, Sean, or James...can be nicked Matt or Jamie. I know these names might seem "blah" and common now, but by the time your child is an adult, they'll probably be rare...
