Truthfully I really like all of these names, especially Ira, Soren, Therese / Theresa, Theda, and Miriam. I love Mim as a nn for Miriam and Tess as a nn for Therese / Theresa. Ira, Soren, and Theda do better without nn's.

I do like Emmanuel, Nathan, Joan, Katarina, and Margaret. We have a good friend named Nathan and I have an aunt named Joan.

Miriam is my favorite from your short list followed by Katarina and lastly Margaret, though I do adore some of the Margaret nn's like Meg, Maisie, May, and Greta. I also like Mags and Maggie, not to mention I'm probably forgetting some other great Margaret nn's. I'm not fond of Marge, Margie, and Margot.

I've known quite well two very nice Margot's but I've never been fond of the name, it sounds so snooty to me even though the two Margot's I've known weren't snooty. I think its because I grew up watching Christmas Vacation and there is a terrible witchy-with-a-b snooty character in the movie named Margot who reminds me of our old next door neighbor Polly.

I don't care for the nn Tom for Thomas but I actually like Tommy. I also like just plain Thomas a lot.
