Today”s question of the week:
Have you come up with or heard any fresh, interesting or unusual nicknames that still have some logical link to the full name?
Today’s parents are almost as concerned with their kids’ everyday names as the formal ones on the birth certificate, and most aren’t content with the old Andys and Angies, Ricks and Randys.
A lot of the newly revived three-and-four syllable vintage names seem to cry out for livlier short forms. One new trendlet seems to be basing nicknames on middle syllables rather than just the first–eg Fee for Seraphina or Ophelia.
