Patrick without Pat and Betsy without Elizabeth?
Two names I have always loved are Patrick and Betsy. I love love love Patrick in it's entirety and HATE the nickname Pat. Thanks SNL. Can Patrick ever be used without Pat being the inevitable nickname? I think I already know the answer to this question, but an opinion would definitively help me put the final nail in this coffin. *sigh* I also like Elizabeth, but it has already been used by a close relative. However, it's the nickname Betsy that I really adore. Can Betsy be used for any other names? Is it enough of a name to stand alone? So far I haven't seen it used for anything except Elizabeth. I figured if anyone knew an alternative it would be Berries. Thanks!

I have known several Patricks and only one of them ever went by Pat.
I have a cousin named Betsy, and while she was little it was adorable but now that she is in her early twenties it sounds too little girl to me. She likes it though. (only thing she ever hated was being called Betsy Wetsy)
Betsy can work for Beatrice.
