I'm looking for a name for a character in a story. The character is an adult, who is a very warm and tender person, and I'm looking for a name of which the pet form would "stick" to the person and become the name by which he is known to everybody.
The thing is, most spanish masculine names, when abbreviated or made into a pet form in a conventional way, don't end with I. At least according to my experience, most pet names ending with I tend to be feminine.
Most names become things like "Rober" "Manu", "Beto"... Or in other cases, the pet name sounds more appropriate for a child (like Pedri from Pedro)
The few that I know - like Santi, Dani, Javi, I ruled out for all kinds of reasons, and I'm looking for more options.

anyway, thank you for the explanation :)
