  4. Francesca says:

    I always introduce myself by my full name, but as people get to know me they sometimes shorten it. One of my teachers calls me Franny, while another calls me Chesca. Most of my friends call me Chesca as well. A few kids tease me and call me Francine or Fran, which I do not like. I think that I will stick with the full name Francesca for my whole life, with different people calling me different nicknames.
