Okay, I feel compelled to reply to this one. I usually ignore these kinds of posts and am completely non-confrontational. By thebump standards I'm a glitter farting, rainbow shitting ray of sunshine. For real. And even I don't like you, OP.
J+G+M:I have a cousin Nanette, but they call her Nan. I don't understand the entire nickname thing, I never did and most likely never will. If you want people to call them the nickname you have chose, then why not make that their name?! One reason why I don't like names that can be shortened into nicknames.
we think the exact opposite. I LOVE names that can change as the child grows. For instance: Jennifer. when a baby/ toddler Jenny is great. Then as she grows up Jen. and in formal occasions Jennifer.

I have a friend whose name is Andrew and ever since he was little everyone called him Andrew. Never Andy or Drew. Another example, one of my cousin's name is Alexandria, but her parents have always called her Ali and that's who she refers to herself as. I don't think I ever heard anyone call her Alexandria, even as a child. I think it generally is up to what the parents call their child and then the majority of the time it sticks, but sometimes as they grow up it changes, like you said.

I known a Nanette, who named her daughter Natalie. Nanette's mom is Evette, I like her mom's name better. Overall, I don't think Nanette will get side-eyed, but it's just a little frumpy sounding.
Also, big ups to the above post re: Jennifer. I was Jenny growing up, switched to Jenn in college, but I'm Jennifer to those closest to me. I love having a choice in my name. Similarly my sister is Julia at work, and Julie in real life.

I really dislike the NN Nan... I know theres a difference in pronunciateion but I thought that was a food.
