that can't easily be reduced to a single syllable?
I know a maria who gos by the name of 'ree' (sic?). Imagine it's the same for marys.
i'll concede this
i would prefer to be called ree ree. I've always wanted a cool nickname.
i had to leave the office.
Axilleas. I'm struggling.
That was supposed just to say Axe. Now it looks like some kind of computer virus.
It's pretty confusing. FECKING GREEKS.
It's Achh-eealiass if he isn't present, but if you're talking to his face you don't pronounce the S sound. Mental. Everyone just calls him Achilles, which is plain wrong because I can beat him in an arm-wrestle.
I think I've only got a 3amp.
I don't think people are to crazy about giving him new, cooler and more exciting names
Skunky's my middle name. And, hoo boy, you best believe no-one's stupid enough to try and reduce it to the skunk or the skunkster. Not on my watch
I look forward to you reducing a one syllable word into a one syllable word. Emphasis on the word reducing.
subquestion: are chris-budget and chris_is_cool the same person?
why would you even think that?
- you have similar user names
- i've never seen the two of you exchange banter in the same thread.

and people would shorten it to "and". i didn't like this.
I know people shorten this to Ba(rr), but you have to do that half-pronouncing the 'rr' thing, which just creates uncertainty and I think it should count as another syllable anyway.
that was the answer i was hoping for. you did not disappoint.
What's Barry short for?
Don’t talk about me like I’m not here. I had a terrible smelting accident.
Can I call you “Baz”?
No. Can I call you the skunk?
FUCK YOU BARRY I’M GOING TO FUCK UP YOUR TOP HALF AS WELL
Delete my post, Theo. Delete all my posts.
she goes by Vea. which is pronounced vee. i dont know why the 'a' is there.
i cant say that i agree with it, but it certainly exists.
I need help with the others
are we reducing the word so that its a shorter 'word' and also reduces the syllable, or just reducing the syllables?
THEREFORE IT DOESN'T COUNT
i have a friend called hannah.
i call them both "han". gutted.
I've always called her Hank
there are massive flaws in lots of these
i can't be bothered to go through all of them but to start you off
different name but entirely acceptable in our society
Judge rules: allow
ANN IS SHORT FOR ANNA.
maybe you'll belive
PARENTING.COM - for all your baby naming needs
* if you DON'T belive me.....
I WAS WORRIED THIS THREAD MIGHT BE GETTING TOO SERIOUS
thats why that one doesn't work.
then Ann is an acceptable shortening of Anna
have no idea that Jim is short for James.
you are right - if someone was called anne - you wouldn't call them anna
but if someone was called anna YOU MIGHT CALL THEM ANN
but that's not the debate here is it?
can't be bothered to check the rest
and theres nothing you can do about it.
likes to be called Rah. Fuck in heaven knows why.
I call her Lyds frequently.
as you were.
Didn't think so.
ron - misleading
Aar - stupid
and everyone was calling them 'Ron' then I'd think they were called Ronald and I'd end up calling them Ronald in an important meeting, offending the important Japanese client and losing the company $$$$$$s
important business meeting
incorrect dark-room hug
both valid, though
Shit Japanese company, not worth not calling him Ron for that much
I had to offer a $6 discount
ON A MILLION DOLLAR DEAL *high fives red-faced man in pin-stripe suit*
it could be misleading. Ron may also be in the room and you may embrace Ron whilst Aar is sitting in the corner waiting for you. It could be awkward.
It will sound like gurn, as said by a gurner.
I'm taking my ball and going home.
You're doing it all wrong.
I'm not quite sure whats going on.
Reads like LOL JK U GUIZE.
All those posts upthread don't smell like LOL JK U GUIZE.
But it must be a LOL JK U GUIZE.
You must surely have the driest sense of humour on the whole board. Keeps us on our toes, I guess.
are you mental?
jo / joe
'Shabba Ranks (born Rexton Rawlston Fernando Gordon)...'
First or given names, tyvm, you massive religionist.
Ian and Eric.
Ask most Ians. I bet they would say they get called 'e' for short.
I know an Ian. I can't believe he's kept this from me.
Its so much easier to shout "E!!" instead of "IAN!"
but you only saw a tram for the first time last week so i'm not sure you can be called on expert on worldly wisdom.
Do you know an Ian?
yes i do
Does he get called E?
I reckon people would find something else to call them...like a shortened version of their surname. 'e' is proper rubbish.
Unlike shortening Gary to 'G' or David to 'D'. That's proper gangsta.
and gary is pronounced
"I'm going out with the lads tonight, going to meet up with ga and day, my (michael) might be coming out as well"
also- thought of another one
oh. I'm turning all wishpig and I want to slap you.
I'm not going to get all wishpig on you all but you are very much wrong.
you cannot shorten the name 'ian'
but when you say it, you just say the letter "e". There must be an Ian here who can back me up and say that they get called "e" sometimes. They may not like it but they probably get called it.
He would have said E, I don't know if it's a scouse thing or not because his friends did it too but even if someone's name had already been shortened he would find a way to shorten it further.
She was wrong.
She must have had a hard time coming up with that name.
THAT'S NOT MY NAME, MY NAME IS HELENA, FUCK OFF.
same applied for horace
same applied for horatio
I'm saying Fucunt
You could go for "No" and "Chlo", I guess, but ...
