Multiple nicknames? vs. Normal?

My husband and I were on here the other day and had decided on the name Lenora Katherine. We were wondering if it’s weird for a baby to have multiple nicknames. After telling only a couple people our name choice(they loved it btw!) she already has about three diff nicknames. I have taken a liking to the nickname Nora-Kate, which is what will be on the nursery wall, but my husband has been calling her Nory, and my mom has been calling her Nora. Will that be too confusing for her? Or is it somewhat normal for a child to be called multiple nicknames? Thanks for your help!

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
