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 ๐Ÿ‘ผ

@trwnh True, Anastacia was my great-grandmother's name. Everyone called her Annice or Annie. Which come to think of it is probably why I never was called Annie.
