DH and I both like name Rebecca but I am wondering, is it very common for all Rebecca's to be called Becky or Becca? I'm not a fan of the latter two and not sure I'd call the baby Rebecca if the likelihood is the name will be shortened.

I’m a Rebecca and used to absolutely hate my full name when I was younger, it felt so formal and almost like I was being reprimanded. Most people call me Becky or Bec, I’ve never been called Bex or Becca. But as I am now much older I actually like being called Rebecca. I think whatever name you give a child it will inevitably be shortened by many. What is it you don’t like about the shortened nickname? I’m quite partial myself lol!
