The one nickname abbreviation I do not get is Dave. Why? It just doesn't make sense. It doesn't fit. Dave just sounds a lot more lame than David. It's one I haven't understood.


my father's name is actually Dave and not David.

I've known quite a few until they get a SO, then all of a sudden she wants him to be called David. Makes it more fun to call them Dave.

How don't you get that. There are worse obvious nicknames.

There was a man named Dave
He kept a dead whore in a cave
Got to admit it smelled like shite
But think of the money he saved

Hank instead of Henry has always confused me.

Rick(y) instead of Richard is also at least a little unusual (as is Dick, which was already said).

But you cannot say "David" without saying "Dave." I guess I just can't see the confusion.

I believe so.

If I were a Charles, I'd stick with the full form name.

I fail to see how you don't get D-a-v-e from D-a-v-I-d. It's probably one of the more sensible nickname derivatives.
