I now pretty much only go by 2 nicknames, but when I was a kid I went by several. my friends called me one thing, my grandma had about 3 different ones she called me, and my dad had a couple he called me. It was never a problem or confusing.

My daughter's name is Elizabeth and she get called Elizabeth most of the time or Miss E. She also gets about 50 pet nicknames from me everyday that are instantly changing! Growing up I had about 100 nicknames at home but only 1 that I that other people used. I don't think you can ever have too many nicknamesThe 3 Princesses in my life...

There is a difference between pet names and nicknames, just to clarify, so I think you can have as many pet names as you want, but for nicknames, anything more than 2 is too much/confusing, at least when she's younger. When she gets older, then it might not be so confusing for her. But while she's young anything more than 2 is too much.
Pet names = honeybee, sweetheart, pumpkin, pooh bear
Nicknames = Liz, Lizzie, Beth, Betsy, Lillibet

Thanks, everyone, for the thoughtful replies. I definitely agree about sticking to one nickname when a child is very young. I love that more nicknames can be added as she gets older, that's very exciting, and I'm glad to hear it's worked out so well for those of you with many nicknames.
