What do you think? I would consider using 'Tatty' for short.

Well Tatiana is a nice-sounding name, but you do know the slang meaning of 'tatty', right? (shabby, basically).

Quite a nice name. I know a couple of Tatianas who are Russian and am not keen on the shortened version, but at least is is unusual. smile

I know a Tatiana - everyone calls her Tanya.

Name is fine, the diminutive is Tanya isn't it? Tatty is horrible.

It reminds me of a Russian porn star. But it IS a nice name!

Tatiana is nice.

Tatty is slang for potato (as in tatties and neeps with haggis!)

Only the very best people are called Tatyana. The correct abbreviation is Tanya. NOT TATTY!

And if you are in the saaf east, it will become Ta' or Ta'y, innit?

nice name

you could use Tina as a diminutive

Hannah31 Fri 10-Jun-11 22:32:54

Surely you can abbreviate it however you want? We have Jemima, who we call Momo - or is that wrong? I like Tatty!

I used to go to school with a very pretty, diminutive, blonde girl called Catherine and her nn was Tatty.

Agree with Hannah31 - you can use whatever nickname you want.

What about Titania - has a nice, Shakespearean ring to it.
