The traditional hypocoristic forms of Bulgarian masculine names end with "-cho", for example: Ivan - Ivancho - Vancho, Stoyan - Stoyancho, Petur - Peturcho, Angel - Angelcho.

The traditional hypocoristic forms of Bulgarian feminine names end with "-ka", for example: Ivana - Ivanka, Snezhana - Snezhanka, Bozhana - Bozhanka.

The ending -oche (with or without an intervening consonant or phoneme to make it easier to pronounce) is also sometimes used: cinoche (cinéma), Mac Doche (Mc Donald's), fastoche (easy-peezy, from facile, easy).

Words or names may also be shortened or abbreviated without an O: fixs from fixations, 'ski bindings'; Jean-Phi from Jean-Philippe; amphi from amphithéatre (large classroom or lecture hall); ciné (another informal word for cinéma).

For males, the suffixes -inho (diminutive) and -ão (augmentative) are the most used.

Informal French has a number of diminutive nicknames, although not as systematically as in English.In Polish, there are multiple affixes used to create the diminutive.Some of them are -ka, -sia, -cia, -unia, -enka, -śka, -lka for feminine nouns and -ek, -uś, -ciek, -czek, -uń, -eńki, -lki for masculine (among others).In French, for both male and female names, hypocorisms are most commonly formed by dropping the last syllable: A special case is the ending in -ick/ -ic, which is the French writing for the hypocoristic form in Breton "-ig", used for both genders. This diminutive, in its French form of "ick" or "ic", became in vogue for official names in the second half of the 20th century: In Breton, the diminutive form "...ig" can be given to any kind of names, nouns or adjectives, (un tammig, a few), while in French it relates only to given names. Often in Breton a hypocoristic form of a given name can be made by putting away the first syllable."Frañsoaz" becomes a familiar "Soaz" then, given to a child, the name is "Soazig", but not as an official name.
