    You get Ted from Edward and Theodor. The other nickname that comes from two names is Rick. Richard and Eric/Erick/Erik. I know, for obvious reasons. :)

    Pepe is the common nickname for Jose in Mexico. This is because Jose was the putative father of Jesus in the bible so Padre Putativo was added to joe`s name which became P.P. which read in Spanish sounds: PePe
    Just saying this is much more interesting than the other explanations.

    well, my name`s Richard and I hate getting called Dick, for obvious reasons (of course it doesn`t help that my surname rhymes with pr0n). The one thing that`s worse is Dicky...¬.¬
    Or tw@ or similar I suppose...
