    WASP nicknames?

    Can anyone help me out? I was trying to come up with some WASP nicknames but stopped after just a few I came up with these ones:
    Muffy
    Mitzi
    Bitsy
    Oatsie
    Buffy
    Bunny
    Topper


    Can you think of any other great wasp nicknames?

    Love this. WASPy nicknames are such treasures.

    Bootsy
    Flossie
    Kitty
    Missy
    Pony
    Tippy
    Topsy

    Bumper
    Cricket
    Hubbell (This is not really a nickname I guess, but the ultimate WASP name to me - Robert Redford's character in The Way We Were)
    Skipper
    Thumper

    Wow - after those names I think I'm ready for some scotch and a game of tennis
    Happy naming!

    My mom knows a Muffin, which is a nickname passed down from mother to daughter in their family.
    I type on an iPhone and take no responsibility for typos, auto-correction, or strange grammar in my posts.

    Well, considering I live in an extremely WASP-y area, here are some kids and teenagers I know that come to mind:

    Rex
    Chip
    Mac
    Hal
    Hank

    Gussie
    Kit
    Molly
    Millie

    Most kids have their official name, usually a classic family name (like Elizabeth or John), and then they either go by their middle name or a completely unrelated "trendy" name.
    Abigail, Beatrice, Jemima, Hazel, Matilda, Svea

    Isaac, James, Jasper, Julius, Sebastian, William
