    Talking Nicknames: What are your favourites?

    I am quite a fan of nicknames, particularly the older sorts like:
    Winnie
    Connie - Our ex-pharamicist's name, I always thought she was lovely, the only long form I like is Contessa and its completely unusable.
    Bonnie - my good friend and Bonnie Blue was so adorable!
    Etta - Etta James, need I say more?
    Ibby - Found this in a novel and thought it was adorable.
    Tess/Tessa/Essie - My Mama's name is Theresa and goes by Terrie so I love these.
    Ellie - It reminds me of the little girl from The Water Babies.
    Elsie - My great-grandmother's name.
    May - Just has such a gorgeous sweet sound.

    What are your favourites?

    Ronan: For the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous.

    Pippi - the nickname of one Pippi Longstocking, one of my childhood heroines. I like Pip, as in Philip Pirrip of Great Expectations, for boys.
    Meg - I prefer Meg to any of its original forms. It has charisma to me, I don't know why.
    Jess - sounds so bright and happy to me, but I dislike Jessica, and am not in love with Jessamine. Tess and Bess just don't have the same spark, to me.
    Effy - I like the sound, but the sole association people have is with a character from a TV show, and it couldn't short for anything other than Euphemia, really.

    Annie - This is my best friends (full) name, and I think that's why I love it so much.
    Cora - I love the sweetness and the vintage charm of Cora, but I don't like it as a full name for some reason. I love Cordelia nn Cora.
    Gwen - This is a new love for me, and I love it as a nickname for Guinevere, Gwendolen and Gwenllian.
    Hattie - There's something about vintage nicknames that I just love. Harriet nn Hattie is perfect.
    Effie/Effy - I can never decide which spelling I prefer for this one, but I've loved it ever since seeing Elizabeth nn Effy on the tv show Skins. (The UK version). It's now a nickname for Persephone on my list.
    Essie - So cute. I love Cressida nn Essie.

    I also love Lottie for Charlotte and Bea for Beatrice/Beatrix.
