I don't know of any nicknames but my grandmother in south GA used to call me Teesa.
----Hello, my name is Tonja as well. It seems I may have had my name the longest. It was bestowed on me in Oct 1964.
It's "MY NAME", even with its beautifully ODD spelling. I jokingly refer to it as my "BIRTH DEFECT" when I have to explain the spelling (and will 1 WILL HAVE TO explain to A LOT). I know it's not the "PC" thing to do,but it "IS" my name!!
MY NAME - I GOT IT WHEN I WAS BORN!!
You had asked about nicknames, and the "PET NAME" that I absolutely adore is, Tonishka (I'm not sure on the spelling)
This was explained to me by an elderly Russian couple that I had become friendly with. And, that's what they called me.
Another nickname they said was associated with Tatiana. I've always felt like that was particular nickname was actually a REAL NAME. So, I never particularly liked being called "Tatiana"
I hope this dd!
