Well, seeing as how you cannot predict how any given child will turn out at the time you name it, and at the age of naming they really don't have anything much in the way of individuality yet, I'd say you're overthinking it a little bit.

Now, nicknames that come later on can turn out not to be very fitting. I know somebody named Patricia, nicknamed Patsy. I picture a Patsy as being obese, sloppy, and not very bright. This Patsy is very attractive, well-educated and well-traveled. She's definitely a Patricia rather than a Patsy.
