Reflecting on names
My siblings have names that follow a pattern: (Timothy / Tim / Timmy) which are:
1) the formal name used by my mother when they're in trouble *
2) the name they are called most of the time
3) the diminutive name they are called affectionately by family.
I do this with my cat too (Semiramis/Samira/Sami)
But there's not much you can do with 'Anna' (And no, I never got Annie). Am I missing out?
* Fortunately I never do anything wrong so I don't need a formal name 👼
