I need help and this list looks like the best place to ask. I need a
listing of alternative(commonly used goes by) names to do a smart search
on a database of people.

i.e.
William, Bill, Billy, Will, Willy, Willie
Robert, Rob, Robbie, Bob, Bobbie
Johnatan, John, Johnny, Johnnie, Jack,

I've gotten the logic down, but I need the list of names and their
alternatives. Does anybody know if such a list exists?

thanks,

chris....
