I found a letter that my mother had written to relatives in Romania.  The letter is to "Fanciu and "Dutu".  Can anyone tell me the English equivalent of these "pet" names?

Likely there are multiple choices. For Dutu (sounds like Dutzu) one could be SANDU which is also a nickname from Alexandru. Fanciu -- never heard of but could be from STEFAN.FANE/FANCIU.

I han an uncle nicknamed Dutu, his real name was David.
Fanciu sounds to me like a nickname to Fania.
