    Names within names

    Hi all,

    I had posted earlier about this topic, stating that I had recently come to the realization that Liam comes from the longer name William and led me to wonder what other names are within longer forms of names. Most people misunderstood what I was asking for (my fault) and gave me traditional nicknames instead of the names that existed within other names. So, this time I'm looking to find out the many names within names.

    For instance: Lia for Ameila, Ian for Sebastian, Ben for Ruben, etc.

    Oh right! So something like Eddie from Benedict?

    ★ August Eli Benedict ★ Bram ★ Casimir Mordecai ★ Edmond John Meirion ★ Gillon ★
    ★ Jory Leander ★ Julian Charles ★ Macsen ★ Magnus ★ Vasiliy ★


    ★ Aira Rose ★ Arietta ★ Clover ★ Delphina ★ Eleni ★ Fiorella ★ Hester Isobel ★
    ★ Iris ★ Lilah ★ Merit ★ Sylvia ★

    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    ooh interesting. The only ones I can think of are pretty well known

    Anna from Annabelle
    Liz from Elizabeth (although I suppose Liz would be more a straight nn than a full name.) Perhaps Beth or Liza and Elizabeth would work better.
    Tilda from Matilda (is Tilda a given name or simply a nn?)
    Cleo from Cleopatra

    I forgot one of my favorites: Rett (Rhett) from Everett
    Cordelia Eilonwy Snow | Evadne Snow | Felicity Astra Wildrose | Gwenna Moon | Lorelei Ondine | Octavia Eowyn Sol
    Pandora Willow Isolde | Petra Leocadia Silver | Sunniva Adar Rhiannon | Thisbe Wildrose

    Caspian Wilder | Damian Sparrow | Evander Thorn | Everett Lyle Ward
    Ezra Balthasar | Gwydion Alaric Hart | Konrad Peregrine Llyr | Malachi Tristan Bjorn | Phineas Robin Blaise | Theodore Winter
