The nicknames almost always evoke a different color for me, I thought that's how most people saw them! I'm interested in how you see these names.
Isabelle (Belle/Bella)- dark sandy brown. Belle and Bella are a sandy yellow.
Arianne (Ari)- red for both
Olivia (Liv/Olive)- dark, forrest green. Olive is actually the color of a green olive, and Liv is bright green.
Violet- green. This one's weird because Violet is literally a color and it's purple, but the word sounds green.
Rachel - light reddish pink
Liliana (Lily)- Lily= light, yellowy green, Liliana= dark, purplish green
Eleni (Leni)- Eleni= pink Leni= dark green
Hannah (Annie)- Annie= bright red, Hannah= dull yellow
Eve (Evie)- For some reason, Eve is more like a texture to me, like glass. I guess the color would be clear, but it's really more of a feeling name for me. Evie I see as bright, almost white, but with little hints of yellow, red, and green; it's more of a light than a color.
Charlotte (Lola)- Charlotte has a texture as well, in this case kind of fleece-like. It's not warm, though, just textured. If I had to pick a Charlotte color, I think it would be a dark, brownish-blakish gray, but a texture comes more easily for this name. Lola is green.
Josephine/Johanna (Posy)- Posy = reddish brown. Josephine and Johanna are both muted orange, like autumn, but Johanna is a bit more brown-red and Josephine is more orange, if that makes any sense.
