    I replied to your post then lost it!

    It's hard to narrow down a list from what you have described, but I thought I'd throw a couple at you

    Boys - Jacob (shortened to Jake) or William (shortened to Will, Bill or Billy)

    Girls - Elizabeth (shortened to Beth, Liz or Lizzie) or Catherine (shortened to Cath or Cathy or Kate)

    We have an Alexandria (Ally) and Imogen (Immy)
    Most names can be shortened to something.

    Why don't you work the other way around? Find a short name you like and then figure out a longer version of it?
