I've noticed how quite a few nicknames are taken from the back end of the name. Veronica becomes Ron or Ronnie, Patricia givign Tricia and so on. Where does Trinnie/y come from? Not Catherine is it? Maybe Katrina.

I think there's an Archers character who's neice is named Coriander. Rosemary I'm familar with, it goes along with the likes of Daisy or Poppy (neither of which is brilliant as names) but is just too weird smiley - weird

Coriander? Weird. Though people probably thought the same when someone first called their kid Daisey or May.
