Full names to go with nicknames
I tend to like long-ish names with cute nicknames, but lately there have been nicknames I like that don't directly come from another name. Here's my list of nicknames I want longer names to go with. Example: Elise --> Elisabeth.
Anne or Ann
Raine (maybe Lorraine?? Opinions on this one?)
All suggestions help! Thanks!!

Elise doesn't sound like a nickname to me at all.. I have a really good friend named Elise, I think it's fine on it's own.
Annie/Ann/Ann -- Annora, Annabel, Aniyah, Anouk, Anoushka, Anna, Annabella
Kinzie -- I can't think of any for this.
Ellie -- Eleanor, Elizabeth, Elisabeth, Elena, Elora, Eliora, Eliana, Ella, Elissa
Molly -- Pomeline, Mary, Margaret, Matilda, Milana
Abbie -- Abigail, Abilene
Raine -- Lorraine would work, but I think Raine is fine on it's own. Reina?
Lainie -- Delaney, Alana, Elena♀ Edith. Iris. Lyra. Violet. Clara. Freya. Alice. Ottilie. Marian. Luella. Beatrice. Anthea. Romilly. Martha. Grace.
♂ Arthur. Stanley. Felix. Henry. Otto. Samuel. Dexter. Edward. Julian. Nicholas. Ira. Sidney. Winston. Thomas. Gabriel.

Elise - Anneliese
Annie - Annabel
Kinzie - Anika Zara
Ellie - Noelle
Molly - I like it on it's own, I can't really think of many good longer names--name Mallory or Paloma or Romilly--but those are all a bit trendy and not as lovely and classic. Or you could just do Mary which is what Molly was originally a nn for.
Abbie - I like Abigail, but there's also Abilene, Anabel, Gabrielle, Isabelle, Sabine--really anything with AB in it.
Raine - Lorena, maybe Rachel Nova or something like that
Lainie - again Lorraine would work, also Magdalena, Liliana, Lavinia, Delaney, MelanieTop Names: Benedict Zeal & Noelle Geneva
Olivia/Livy : Darah/Bethel : Eve/Verity
Eli/Calvin: Luke/Zane: Levi/Phineas

Elise - Elisabeth or Eliska? Although I agree this can definitely work on its own.
Anne/Ann/Annie - All An- names that have already been suggested, plus Anastasia, Annamaria, Marianne, Susannah, Roxanne, Isannah etc
Kinzie - hmm.. Keziah maybe?
Ellie - Works for just about any El- name. I don't think Elowen, Elspeth or Elettra have been mentioned yet. Also any -ella/-elle/-bella/-belle name. Demelza nn Ellie is fun, too.
Mollie - Romilly or Romola
Abbie - Arabella/Arabel, Sabrina/Sabina, Isabel/Isabella/Annabel/Annabella/Gabrielle/Gabriela, Tabitha
Raine - Lorraine would work for both Raine and Lainie, although I prefer Lorena. Valeraine maybe?
Lainie - Lorraine, Alienor, Avelaine, Madeleine, Violaine, Elaine, Madgalena.august cillian edmund evelyn stellan // anouk demelza elizabeth lydia violet
