I don't know of anyone will be able to help me with this.
The girl in my story is named Victoria. She goes by Vicky but her boyfriend calls her Tora and I need to come up with a reason why he started calling her that since no one else does.
I've been stuck on this for a while and was hoping someone else might be able to think of something.
Any suggestions/ideas?

Her parents insist she goes by Vicky, but she doesn't like it. He calls her Tora because they have a really close relationship and he knows she doesn't like Vicky.

You probably already know this, but the Torah is the name for the first five books of the Bible, you are looking to possibly offend some Jewish people if Tora is the girls' name. I don't know who your audience is, and it could very well be no Jewish people, but I just thought I should let you know. Tora has a lovely ring to it :)

Well, you could make up a fake book and say that the main character's name was Tora. You can then go on to explain how her boyfriend loved the book, and how Victoria reminds him of Tora, and that's why he calls her that.
