I said something similar to this in response to the Josie post, but it was a bit confusing so I'll try to express my thoughts more clearly here:
Cutesy nicknames have a similar sound to a lot of names ending in an -ie sound that most people feel are 'legitimate'. I'm thinking of names that aren't traditionally nicknames, such as Amy, Kelly, Ashley, Casey, etc. I don't see why a nickname (given as a fn or not) like Katie, Rosie, Evie, etc. should be taken less seriously than those other names. IMO, a cutesy name is much more professional than a made up or creative name.

With that being said, I also tend to prefer longer names with cutesy nicknames. You can't go wrong with multiple names to choose from!
