    Arrow Know any unexpected names behind a nickname??

    Recently, I found out that my friend Cali, (we call him this because he's from California) his real name is Kelly. Okay, so they aren't that different in sound, but I never saw it coming. Mostly because I've never met a boy named Kelly. Also because Kelly doesn't exactly fit him. The reason he's hidden it is that he doesn't like his real name.

    Current loves:

    Well, Cali is pretty feminine sounding too (Callie is a girls name) so I don't get why he's hiding Kelly. Kelly is a unisex Irish surname and is used for both genders (as is Casey, Riley/Reilly, Kerry etc...). If he's masculine enough to pull off Cali, I think Kelly is fine too!

    Forgot to mention names with unexpected nn's...

    Margaret/Marguerite - nn Daisy
    Josephine - nn Posey

    I know a Lily who is actually called Elizabeth. I know Lily is a 'known' nickname for Elizabeth, but it always gets me when she mentions her fuller name. I don't know why... she just doesn't seem like an Elizabeth to me, Lily suits her so well and they're such different styles.
