    Names within names

    Hi all,

    I had posted earlier about this topic, stating that I had recently come to the realization that Liam comes from the longer name William and led me to wonder what other names are within longer forms of names. Most people misunderstood what I was asking for (my fault) and gave me traditional nicknames instead of the names that existed within other names. So, this time I'm looking to find out the many names within names.

    For instance: Lia for Ameila, Ian for Sebastian, Ben for Ruben, etc.


    Thanks!

    ooh interesting. The only ones I can think of are pretty well known

    Anna from Annabelle
    Liz from Elizabeth (although I suppose Liz would be more a straight nn than a full name.) Perhaps Beth or Liza and Elizabeth would work better.
    Tilda from Matilda (is Tilda a given name or simply a nn?)
    Cleo from Cleopatra

    *edit*
    I forgot one of my favorites: Rett (Rhett) from Everett
    Considering...
    Cordelia Eilonwy Snow ● Evadne Undomiel Snow ● Isabeau Jane Sophronia ● Lorelei Nimue Ondine
    Pandora Vivienne Swan ● Thisbe Octavia Wildrose ● Thora Ilythia Swan

    ●●● ●●● ●●●
    Caspian Ithuriel Wilder ● Damian Rainer Sparrow ● Evander Ithuriel Sol
    Gwydion Alaric Hart ● Malachi Tristan Bjorn ● Phineas Robin Blaise ● Theodore Peregrine Llyr

    our furbabies: Sebastian & Oleander
