What is the origin of the short forms i.e. how do they come to be ?
For example how is Bill (or other forms such as Billy) related to William ? Bob to Robert ? Jack to John (remember Kennedy)? These, and many others are not obvious. Short forms like Ted to Theodore, Rob to Robert, Mike to Michael, etc. are obvious.
Let me know.
