    Sasha and other diminutives

    I go by Sasha in my Russian class (the most fun I've had in years). Could someone please provide a list of Alexandra's diminutives, so my friends can be endearing, belittling, etc.? Yes, even the derisive names I want. Thank you in advance (though you will probably get a thank you later, too),

    Excuse me, Professor from the University of Gambling, do casinos have an effect on crime? No? Why, thank you very much.

    Thanks. I've heard Шура before, but I never knew it was Alex!

    A few more:

    Санчо, Санчоус, Шуршенция, Алессандро, Санчос-бей (this is what we call one of my colleagues), Сашенция, Александримус.

    Алексом все-таки чаще называют Алексея, а не Александра...

    А еще в молодости у меня была кличка Искандер. (На Востоке Александра Македонского называли Искандер Двурогий)

    Искандер (или, точнее, Искендер) — это татарскоязычный аналог русского «Александр». Что-то вроде «John–Иван»

    Hmmm, all Alexes I know are actually Alexanders, Alexeis are almost invariably Lyoshas.... I wonder if this is a regional thing? I come from St Pete, btw.

    Шура with a stress on the last syllable used to be the popular one (maybe it is now) named after russian pop star
    Пораскинул мозгами, теперь собираюсь с мыслями.
