Do you prefer these nicknames as full names or short for a longer name?
These names are originally nicknames but are now used as full names on their own-
So do you prefer these names as names on their own or do you prefer them as nicknames for a longer name and if so what names are they short for?
All opinions and thoughts welcome!!! =)

Beth - I prefer it as a nickname for either Elizabeth or Bethany.
Demi - I see this as a full-name.
Robbie - I see this as a nickname for Robert or Robin.
Alex - I see it as both a full-name or nickname for Alexander, Alexandra, Alexandria, etc.
Bella - Although I've met a couple of younger Bella's, I always see this as a nickname for Isabella.
Mikey - I don't mind it as a full name, but I see it as more of a nickname for Michael.

Beth - I like this better as a nickname for Elizabeth or Bethany. But as a middle name on its own it's fine. I have a friend whose middle name is Beth.
Demi - This one I like as a full name, just because I don't like Demetria (that's what it was a nickname for right?)
Robbie - For a boy, I'm assuming...I like Robert better.
Alex - This is okay as a full name for a boy, but for both genders I prefer having it be a nickname.
Bella - I don't like this as a full name at all. Or a nickname. But it's better as a nickname.
Mikey - I don't like this at all as a full name. It's fine as a nickname for Michael.
Tina - This can definitely stand on its own. I'm not even sure that it wasn't always able to stand on its own. I mean I know it can be a nickname for Christina, but people have been called Tina as a full name for a while.

Beth - 9 times out of 10 I'd assume it was short for Bethany, which is usually is.
Demi - I like this as a stand-alone name
Robbie - Fine on it's own but I think people would assume it's a nickname for Robert
Alex - Again fine on it's own but people would assume it's a nickname for Alexander/Alexandria
Bella - I think Isabella straight away. But it's nice on it's own too
Mikey - I like this on it's own, it's cute. But I also like Michael so that works for me too
Tina - I only like this as a name by itself. Christina could be the full name but I personally wouldn't use it

I like Beth as a nickname for Elizabeth or Bethany.
I don't really like Demi or Robbie but I guess some full names could be Demetria or Roberta.
I love Alex as a nickname for Alexandria, Alexia, or Alexa.
I love Bella! I think it's gorgeous on it's own, or as a nickname for Isabella or Anabella.
I like Mikey as a nickname for Michaela.
I think Tina is fine on it's own or as a nickname for Athena.

Who made that proclamation? They still sound like nicknames to me.
