I have somehow managed to get my fave nicknames out of my favourite (full) names, though I'd always use their full names (she says). Most of them are legitimate names, but I like them as nns. *s are my absolute favourites:
Aura*- I love as a nn for Pandora (I dislike Dora). It would make more sense to spell it Ora, but I hate that spelling.
Evie*- Evanthe, I knew an amazing, and really nice recorder player called Evie.
Enna*- Rowenna, I also like Row.
Trixie*- Beatrix, also the name of a cool, and feisty character in a show I like.
Bell- Arabella, so much more feisty and adventurous than Bella IMO.
Merry- Mairead (rhymes with parade)
Pippi*- Olympia, Probably a lot to do with Pippi Longstocking
Lolly- Olympia, It's just such an adorable nn for a little girl
Molly- Olympia, My love for Molly is entirely due to Molly Hooper and Molly Weasley. I spent ages looking for names that could give nn Molly (just as a general challenge), and I thought Olympia kind of works.
Flower- Cypress, basically I couldn't find a nn from the name itself, but I found out there's a cypress flower, hence the nn.
Sally*- Thessaly, I love Sally because of Charlie Brown's little sister in Peanuts.
Lyra*- Illyria, I have Lyra as a middle as well. I love it!
Tilly-Beth/Tilda-Beth- My full combo for Matilda, is Matilda Hazel Beth
Tabby- Tabitha, I actually love cats as well (though tabbies aren't my favourites)
Laea- Linnaea, Lay-a, like the princess
Laina (Lay-na)- Helaina

My favourites are:
Kitty - for classic Katharine, quirky Ketzia, or vintage Kathleen.
Libby & Lilibet - For Elizabeth
Bee, Betty - It's actually my favourite as short for Beatrice, but Betty is more typically (outside of my family) short for Elizabeth.
Polly - For Opal or Apollonia.
Cat - For Catherine or Catriona.
Bree, Brina - for Sabrina
Billie - for Sybil
Kay - I'm fond of it for any girls' name that starts with K.
Esme - for Esmeralda
Callie - for Caroline
Pepper, Penny - Penelope
Teddie - Theodora
I am aware Caroline, Elizabeth, and Katharine is a very different sort of sibset from Apollonia, Esmeralda, and Theodora. Can't help that.

Birdie - I love how whimsical this is, and like it for both Bridget and Beatrice
Carrie - My MIL is Carole, and have recently been considering Caroline, with the nn Carrie in her honour
Indie - Another whimsical one, which I would use as a nn for Ingrid
Kate - I don't know why I like this one so much, except that I adore my Aunt Kathy
Maisie - I'm not a fan of Margaret, but I LOVE Maisie.
Meg - I've loved Meg since I read Little Women the first time. I'm still not loving Margaret, or Megan for that matter...
Millie - This name is similar to my MIL's maiden name, and also to my SIL's name. I've been considering it for Matilda
Nelly/Nellie - A lovely nn for Penelope. I prefer it by far to Penny
Nora/Norah - I love this for Elinor/Eleanor
Sadie - This is my name crush right now.
Tess - I love Tess, and a fellow berry pointed out that it could be a nn for Beatrice, which DH loves
Thandie - (nn for Thandiwe) I think Thandie is both sweet and exotic at the same time. Gotta love that!Graham | Macallister | Henry
