    I like my favourite names in their full form and I would use them that way, although I'm sure I would shorten them or use nicknames sometimes.
    The ones I like are:
    Catherine - Cath, Katie
    Eve - Evie
    Serena - Rina, Nina

    Jared - Red
    Ciaran - Keir
    Roderick - Roddy (this is the only one I'd use all the time)
    Calder - Col
    Not expecting - just interested in names!

    Catherine, Marina, Faye, Nina, Cassandra, Clara, Serena, Lyra, Leigh, Persephone, Annabeth
    Jason, Blair, Conrad, Finn, Jensen, Calder, Damon, Gregor, Jared, Hamish, Jago

    Abbott - Bud or Buddy, maybe Al if I used Abbott Lionel
    Adelaide - Lady
    Alastair - Al or Lester (but spelled different)
    Alexandra - Lux or Lex
    Christopher - Chip or Kit
    Dominic - Dom or Nico
    Elizabeth/Elisabeth - Eliza or Lisbet
    Fiona - Ona (Oh-na)
    Malcolm - Mal or Colm
    Scarlett - Scout
    Tobias - Toby (I like both enough to just use Toby by itself)
    Victoria/Viktoriya - Vika

    And, just in general, what nicknames (or names you consider as nicknames) do you like?

    Lana - It's in some other names like Alana and Svetlana, but it definitely can stand alone
    Lena - I find this is more of a stand alone name, but it is in other names.
    Mack - I just really love the sound of it by itself.)
    Trent - I like this and I feel like it's long version is Trenton.
    Vera - Shortened from Verona or Veronica
