People, especially family call my son Alex. Never once have I ever referred to him as Alex. It's Alexander. That's why I named him that. I'm there with you!

My kids names are Jacob Elijah and Hannah... not Eli Jake and Hannah... though we do cal Hannah B. it really cheezes my hubby off... he thinks that if we wanted to name them eli and jake we would have. it doesn't bother me when others do it (like it does him) but i only call them Jacob and Elijah

 My name is Stephanie and I don't mind Steph. But, if you call me Stephy I will shoot a baby!!!

It seems like people with shorten anything. My oldests name is Ryan and he gets called Ry. And my 6 year old is Justin and I have family that call him just J or J-Man. It doesn't bother me just kind of funny I guess.

I go by Katie but a few people call me Kate.  No my kids are a whole other story.  Andrew is Andrew...period.  I hate Andy and Drew is even worse.  MaKayla is never called by her name and Christopher is Christopher.  He was named after my brother and he goes by Chris so it gets confusing if we call our baby Chris.
