Charles or Charlie?

What do you think of just naming a child by the NN rather than the original?
Like, instead of Christopher, just Chris. Instead of Sandra, just Sandy? Instead of Alexander/Alexandra, just Alex.
Are there any NN you favor over the original?

There are a few names I know that are "nn's" and not full names that I like better. Like Callie is a shorter form of Caliope, but I prefer just Callie. And I like Nessa a lot, but not as much for Vanessa. Any nn that sounds full basicly.
Hope my opinion helps! ~Had

Hope my contradicting answer is good enough!

Hmm well I dislike both names but I think that if you love the nn and not the full name then use it! I know quite a few Charlie's and even a Charli and they are fine with their name. On the other hand I also know a Charles and he for some strange reason is never called Charlie. I hope my unusual answer helps in some way.
That is the same with my fiance. His names is James. it is never Jim, Jimmy or Jamie. He does get older people calling him Jim. Then a girl I knew named Sandy. Her mom cut out the middle man, so to speak, and just named her Sandy.

As for your question, there are names I prefer the nick name too. Such as Jack, I dislike Jackson and Jonathan, but LOVE Jack. I prefer Lily to Lillian/Liliana/Lillith. I prefer Kate to Katherine. I like Toby better than Tobias/Tobin. And I also like Cole more than Colton. I have a lot of names that I like more in the "nick name" form.
