Your Favorite Way to Get to "x" NN?

I’m going to provide a list of nicknames that I like, and some that you folks suggested in my previous post. I’d like to know what is your favorite way to get to each given nn. [name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to only answer the ones you wish, or have an answer for, of course. Not going to differentiate between boys and girls, you can answer for both or either. The spelling is mostly unimportant, as long as the pronunciation is the same. [name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to ask for clarification if you don’t know how a particular nn is pronounced or if you know of more than one pronunciation that is common, I have attempted to use intuitive spellings. Stretchy is okay, but I would prefer intuitive answers if possible. Have fun!
