About the Nickname Finder

Curious what a name is short for? Wondering if there's a way to shorten a name? Perhaps your looking for a less traditional nickname. Let our Nickname finder answer those questions for you.

The Nickname Finder can identify both traditional and more unique nicknames for a given name. The Nickname Finder starts with a list common nicknames. That list is then expanded by using a combination of language models and edit distance to find new similar but less expected variants that could work for each candidate nickname.
