Googled: "Russian pet names for boys" "Russian terms of endearment" "Russian nick name Alfred" "Russian diminutive Alfred" "Russian equivalent of Alfred" "what is the Russian word for elf" etc
Question: I need a diminutive, or a nick name of sorts, in Russian, for a young man named Alfred. Unfortunately, Alfred is an English name meaning "elf council" so I've had very little luck in the Russian department. Ideally I would like a diminutive (like Vanya for Ivan, etc) or a nickname meaning "little elf" in Russian, or at the very least, endearing terms for young men/boys.
Thank you so much!
