although this is true.. I definitely don't think there's anything wrong with naming your child a shortened version of a formal name. You can name your child anything in the world.

My daughter who is due in May will be named Sadie. My name is Sarah which is the origin name for Sadie, but Sarah is just so common (although I love the name!)
