I'm the same as a few MNers above. I like some of the full versions of names but hate the shortened and sometimes visa versa.

Like Stanley - HATE Stan.
Like Leo - not a fan of Leonardo or Leon
Love Luke - dislike Lucas.

I can't risk naming my unborn boy Stanley on the off chance that people will call him Stan - yuk! Can you imagine a baby called Stan?!?!
