This is kinda a funny topic for me. My mom always said that part of the reason she gave me the name Tanya (pronounced, Tawnya), is because it would be hard to give me a nickname which means people would have to call me by my actual name. Not so much. I think everyone in my family actually calls me by a shortened version more than they actually use Tanya! LOL.
So my nicknames would include: Tan, T, and Tawny usually. My cousin Kelly has made a progression of nicknames for me went like this: Tan - Won - Won Ton - Wonita. Yes, sometimes she just straight up calls me Wonita. Ha. My family is crazy.
