    Names you love but with nicknames you hate?

    I love the name Ernest/Earnest but STRONGLY dislike the inevitable "Ernie" nickname.


    What are some names you like but just can't get yourself to use because of the nicknames?

    I agree with lawsonhaley, I also dislike Maddie as a nn for Madeleine.

    I also don't like Amy for Amelia and Eve for Evelyn.

    I have a huge list! And I'm the opposite with Amelia nn Amy (Doctor Who! ), but I agree with Andrew nn Andy/Drew. I don't usually let nns bother me, especially if there are alternatives. But some where I really hate the nns are:

    Edmund nn Eddie/Ed
    Nathaniel nn Nathan/Nate
    Sebastian nn Seb
    August nn Gus (In general, I can't stand the 'gus' sound, which is why I dislike Augustus (despite TFIOS) /Augusta, where it seems to be emphasised)
    Benedict/Benjamin nn Ben
    Florence nn Flo (Just eww...)
    Constance nn Connie
    I really seem to dislike nns for boys.
