[ANON POST] Unique British Nicknames

Does anyone know of any nicknames used only in the UK (and not the US)? E.g., "Baz" for Barry. (Though I can't use that one, or "Gaz"/Gary for story-related reasons.)

The story is set in the modern day real world, and the character in question is English, male, born in London, 41-years-old and now working for the military.

I've tried searching "unique british/english nicknames" on Google but all I get are either lists of uncommon first names, or lists with nicknames (like this one http://www.britishbabynames.com/blog/uncommon-and-unusual/) we absolutely do use in the US (like "Nico" for Nicolas, "Alfie" for Alfred, etc.) I've also tried looking for derivations of Baz/etc. but that has given me only more of the same, like Bazza/Mazzer/etc.

Thanks in advance.
