    New nicknames for old/ old favourite names?

    Sunny as a nickname for Susan is such a great idea (from an earlier thread) that I was wondering what other unexpected nickname pairings are floating around to revive the appeal of well-loved or classic girl's names?

    True for Trudy or even Gertrude? Zazie for Elizabeth? I was trying to think of some fresh nicknames on the level of awesome that is Sunny-for-Susan for other mid-century names (Barbara, Patricia, Denise, Theresa), but coming up blank. Does anyone have any favourites or ideas along the Sunny/Susan lines?
    current top ten

    Joan | Marion | Ines | Maud | Winifred | Aphra | Susannah | Hermione | Lark | Eleanor

    Roger | Jerome | Hugh | Chester | Fergus | Archibald | Griffith | Blaise | Cathal | Ivo

    Nicole/Nicola - Nixie (One of my faves)
    Elizabeth - Billie, Lily
    Barbara - Bea, Birdie, Bambi
    Patricia - Reese, Pax
    Karen - Ren/Wren
    Pamela - Mila
    Christine - Cricket, Kit
    Beverly - Ever
    Linda - Indie
    Jennifer - Effie, Fife
    Melissa - Mila, Misty, Mitzi
    Deborah - Rory, Bo

    Not sure they're as good as Susan 'Sunny' though
