I think Avi works, until something better comes up. Can't force a good nickname.

That is what everyone in everything does. ex: Paulie
The Hawks actually go with an "-er" more often though. ex: Kaner, Tazer, Jammer

Actually, using this formula, Konerko's nickname would be "Konie."

Instead of going with the first part of his name (Avi) I'll go with the last (Eel) The Eel. (I know it's a STRETCH)
