I need to use abbreviation about street names which are compound words like "Niittytie", "Kutomopolku" and "Kuusikuja". How to use when I have about 1000 diffrent names which need to shorten?


Niittytie has ending "tie" -> Niittyt.

Kutomopolku has ending "polku" -> Kutomopl.

Kuusikuja has ending "kuja" -> Kuusikj.


I have read about abbreviation and truncating words but its not help me alot
