Hey my middle name is Kay
So of course I think it's a great nickname...I was/am called by my first and middle names by my parents.

Kim and Kimmie are the nick names I've heard for Kimberly.

I have a Natalie and its a little long. But, if we continuously call her Natalie, I think everyone else will too.

We have friends who have a 21 year old son, Anthony. They have called him Anthony all his life and not once have I heard anyone call him Tony or any other nick name.

Just set the standards. Hopefully everyone else will follow suit.

I have a Michael and I introduce him as Michael and asked family and friends to call him Michael. If when he is older he wants to be called Mike or Mikey that is up to him.

We do the same with Lucas. We introduce him as Lucas, and Luc is acceptable to us, but we do not allow his cousin (or other kids) to call him Lukie although they have tried. So, you can at least discourage nicknames that you DON'T like. She may take on a nickname by herself when she's old enough to talk in attempting to pronounce her own name.
