How ironic. I do believe that Princess Antoinette of Monaco, Prince Rainier's sister, was also called Tiny. In Grace of Monaco they used Ray as a nickname for Rainier, and as the movie is rather bad and therefore historically inaccurate, I was wondering if this was his actual nickname or just something made up for the movie.

I find Spanish nicknames fascinating. I have never heard of Carlet used as a nickname for Carlos, though I would think his parents made it up for him. Pipo is an adorable nickname too but I don't like the name Philip. I also find it interesting that Lulu was used as a male nickname for Luis. In English speaking countries, it's used as a nickname for names such as Louise, Louisa etc and other names starting with 'lu'.
