In Russia, most Names have a standard pet form (eg. Girls: Lena for Elena, Tanya for Tatyana, Masha for Maria, Sveta for Svetlana, Ena for Irena; Boys: Sasha for Alexandr, Volodia for Vladimir, Vanya for Ivan, Kolya for Nikolai, Seryoja for Sergei etc etc). Natasha is the standard pet form for Natalia, but I guess your friend/ her parents can choose whatever pet name she/they want to for her given name, particularly when not in Russia.
