Names for short names used as nicknames

What are some unique full first names for the following short names used as nicknames? It can be old-fashioned, vintage or modern. That doesn’t matter too much to me. I just want it to be slightly rare and also not the typical, usual, popular names for these certain nicknames. (I do know that I dedicated a thread specially to [name_f]Cara[/name_f], which is also on this list. I did, however, specify that I’d like [name_m]French[/name_m] full first names in that thread, whereas here - while I really do prefer [name_m]French[/name_m] names for all of them, they don’t have to be. I apologize if you feel like it’s repetitive.)

[name_f]Cara[/name_f]
[name_u]Lexi[/name_u]
[name_f]Liv[/name_f]
[name_u]Penny[/name_u]
[name_u]Skye[/name_u]

Sidenote: I may add to this later as I can’t remember all of them now.

Thank you!

This doesn’t necessarily answer your question; but I read a book recently where the main character went exclusively by “Axi” and her name was [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] a more unexpected nickname then [name_u]Lexi[/name_u]. [name_f]Alexandrine[/name_f], [name_f]Alexandrina[/name_f] and [name_f]Alexandria[/name_f] work too. :slight_smile:
