I was named after my father, so I have never been called Steve or Steven by anyone who knows me; I always went by my middle name. It's a great way to filter out telemarketers. If they ask for Steven'they clearly don't know me.

Steven is my name. I too really don't like to be called Steve, but I never had any nicknames like Stevie. It was always Steven. My grandmother insisted that my name was spelled with the "ph" and because she was so set in her ways, we "allowed" her to sign my name on cards and such spelled like that.
