    My brother's name is Benjamin, and we've just never shortened it. I think he goes by Ben at school sometimes, but at home he's always Benjamin. It's funny, because his twin, Adam, gets shortened to Addy quite frequently. Benjamin's occasional nickname is Teddy (a situational nickname that in no way derives from his actual name.)

    So, I guess there's really no way of predicting or controlling what people are going to call your child/your child is going to call him or herself.
