    Diminutive for Kazimir?

    Who can tell me what's the short form/diminutive for the name Kazimir? (Like Aleksandr-Sasha, Dimitri-Dima etc.) Thanks for helping! Nina

    Some names don't have a simple short form like "Dmitry-Dima" has.
    These names include Никита, Игорь, Тарас, Анжела, Казимир,etc.

    However, they might have an affectionate diminutive formed with suffixes: Игорь - Игорёк, Казимир - Казимирчик, Никита - Никитка, Тарас - Тарасик.

    I saw in books Казимир->Казя, Казик. But It was about 70x. Never met a person with the name "Казимир", don't know how do they react on that.

    Kazimir (Kazimierz) is mainly a Polish name. AFAIK poles use Kazik as a diminutive.

    According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypocorism:
    Kazimierz → Kazek, Kazio, Kazik
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
