I have two students named Katherine/Catherine and neither gets called by any of the common or uncommon Catherine nn. Full names all the time. And I teach high school, which means they have made it through 11 years of school without a nn. Most teachers ask students if they prefer a nn or a full name, in my experience. So therefore, yes, I would use a name even if I hated the nickname because I think it's possible to have most people call the child by the full name.Mi corazón Zoe Milena

More of my students (in college, none the less) seem to be going by their full names, so there is hope as long as the child is on board, as dindlee noted in her post. As for me, though, Nikolai is out the window because I don't like Nick, and Nikolai is in good company with many other names that I tossed out due to nicknames.

I feel like most people will respect your wishes if you tell them to use his full name. However, there will be people who will repeatedly ignore you and call him whatever they want to. I'm Alexandra and go by Alex, either of which is acceptable. I had a coworker that called me Al. I told her over and over that I didn't like it, then just stopped responding when she called me that and when I left that job 2 years later, she was still calling me Al.
