Such shortcuts are mainly useful for you if you have the font installed. Such lists are on your system. If you use pdfTeX, take a look into
pdftex.map. You could find it by
at the command prompt, or use any search feature of your system. It shows the font mappings.
There are ways you could get concrete information you need. I would list all installed fonts by
On my system ist lists nearly 200 lines of font maps, such as
so I know which fonts are installed. I posted this earlier here.
To see the respective shortcuts, I would look into those files. Since I can find them using
kpsewhich, I type
gedit `kpsewhich kpfonts.map`
using gedit or any other editor. So I find the shortcuts inside:
Often I take the quick way and look into the
sty file to hopefully find the correct shortcut. Again, I use
gedit `kpsewhich aurical.sty`
Remark, for an explanation and an outlook:
kpsewhich works also on Windows.
gedit is a GNOME editor, mainly used on Linux, such as Debian and Ubuntu. The backticks in the command lines evaluate the command and give the output to
gedit. Because of command line features, piping, grepping, replacing with regexp and many more I like to use TeX on Linux. Here, I look for font names on my complete system, filtering for Charter fonts, cutting the output a bit by
sed, the stream editor:
updmap-sys --listmaps | sed 's/^.* \(.*\)$/\1/' | xargs kpsewhich | \
xargs grep -i charter | sed 's/^.*:\(.*\)<.*$/\1/' | sed 's/<.*$//'

If there would be a list on the internet, I guess it could be found by using a search engine and typing in 5 or more already known shorthands all together.
