It's a deminutive, not a nickname.

Ana Ivanović.

Re: poll
I created a poll because it is trendy. No, I created a poll as a joke.

Re: anci question
During an interview with the tennis channel many years ago, Ana discussed that name.

Nick name is the not the right word, since the name has nothing to do with Ana. Ana is as short as it gets. Ana said that she prefers Ana since it is shorter. Anuska is another name she receives and is warmer to the soul than Anci, especially if the person is a poster and no-one knows the person. Anci could used derogatorily. If the poster is a racist.

I’ll give you a hint:
Hint #1: anci is short for a word that is 9 letters long.
Hint#2: anci is not found at the beginning of the name.
Hint#3: anci is not found at the end of the name.
Hint#4: it could be used as an adjective and a noun.

Next group of hints if no-one guesses correctly my version of the meaning:
Hint#5: T.S.
Hint#6: reason why she got the name job description name.
