I think most dogs understand nicknames. Jasmine is called by her full name, Jazz, Jazzy, Jazzy girl, Jazzy Poo, etc. and responds to all. Delgado is called by his full name 95% of the time, though I do call him Puppy sometimes. I stick with one name for the first few weeks then I don't care so much if people swap it up, the foundation is there so as long as they're not calling them derogatory names people can call my dog Peanut Butter, chances are the dog won't respond anyways so no harm done

In the end, it's your dog and you pick the name
