My parents had planned on my nickname being "Fran" or "Prim" (my middle name)
When I was born my brother had a bit of a lisp so used to call me Fransheka (sounds like FRAN-SHEK-A) skipping the middle S.
21 years later everyone in my family (and quite a few friends) calls me Sheka (Shek-a.. e like the first e in Elephant)
it's almost as much "my name" as my actual full name.
Sh*t happens. Nicknames happen naturally.. I wouldn't worry about them.
