Gabe- Gabriel
Tyler, Tyson, Tyrell, Tyrese- Ty
Joshua- Josh
Joseph- Joey

That's all I can think of for now, but I know theres tons more, haha

My name is Deborah, but I've been Deb since the day I was born - after learning this lesson, my parents just went ahead and named my sister "Jan" because they knew if she was Janet or Janice or anything like that, she'd be Jan anyway.

I really like nick names. I think they give the person a chance to personalize the name they were given. For instnace, My full name is Jennifer which i hate, but I actually really like the nn Jenna or Jen. Its a way to make the name my own.

I agree.
My husband's name is the short form of another name, ad he has always wished his parents had named him the full name and given him the option. People assume his is a nickname and call him the full version a lot of the time. Some names (Toby for example) sound cute on a little guy, but as an adult he might really prefer the more grownup Tobias.

Of course if you dislike the full name then why would you name your kid that? So I guess it depends on the name - if the full version is nice to you, but you just think you'll call the kid the nickname, go with the full version then and call the kid the nickname. If you dislike it, don't.
