Go by their first name, or a shortened version of their first name?

Or do they go by their middle name?

My brother is Gary Michael, but goes by Mike. As an example.

They usually go by their first name but we do have nicknames for them. Leah goes by her name and then she goes by lulu. Kevin goes by his name and Kevi and Brent sometimes. And Alison goes by hers and Ali or alicat. When I'm getting on to them I say their first and their middle lol

My 2 year old is Cyrus and he goes by that. We all call the baby Peanut, and he thinks that is her name. When i ask him to say Elyse Mackenzie it comes out Lease Kenzie.

First name. I call her Bug sometimes, and my husband calls her Boot Scoot or Rooster. I have no idea why, but whatever.

My son's name is Daniel Joseph. We call him Daniel, Danny, or bubba or bubbs.

Just her full first name. Never middle name. Her first name is too short to have any logical nicknames.
