Just wondering what others think? I love it with Freddie as a NN, DP hates it though.

Sorry. Don't like it. My father has it as it's a family name but has used his middle name all his life.

I love it, but I have a 3yo Frederick (usually known as Freddie). It was my grandad's name & he was my hero growing up so it's sentimental too.

I love Frederick but Freddie feels popular and take some of the charm away for me. It's a perfectly nice, useable name though!

I love it but I can't pronounce it (stupid lisp turns it into Fwedwick).

Rooners Tue 10-Dec-13 15:03:37

It's lovely - we have used it as a middle name, it's a family name here too.

Not keen in Frederick but what about Maverick?

I like it grin

I love it. It's my favourite boys name. Freddie's gorgeous, especially when they're little. It also works brilliantly for one adult Freddie I know. The other has been Fred since he was a teenager.

my brother is frederick; freddie wont last much past the age of 8, by which time he will feel its babyish and become fred. so decide whether you like fred its inevitable.

I know one who gets called Fred, never Freddie. He's really lovely but it's one of the names I just don't like, I'm not sure why.

I have a Frederick, it's family name in both of our families. We use a mixture of Freddie and Frederick day to day. DH wasn't keen either, until after DS was born, when he decided it suited him well, so it might just be a case of waiting it out a while for you!

Love it!

I know one who is a Fred. The only Freddie I know is an Alfred not Frederick.

Freddie after the brilliant Mr Mercury what could be better grin

I like Frederick.

Mainly, I think, because of Captain Wentworth in my favourite Jane Austen novel, Persuasion.

DontLetTheMugglesGetYouDown Tue 10-Dec-13 18:20:13

Haha Impomea that's part of why I want it! Queen are my most favourite band!

I love it, think I'm going to have to push for it though!

CruCru Tue 10-Dec-13 18:29:41

Frederick is my brother's name. He has always been called Freddy though.

Impomea England Tue 10-Dec-13 20:11:34

Hi Dont -I wasn't allowed to call either of my 2 DS Freddie so the dog had it instead smile

Superb name which I hope one of my DC will use. It's a name which holds lots of memories & one I couldn't use with my DS & I now live in hope for the future generation.

Bue Wed 11-Dec-13 12:10:56

It's my favourite name. The only thing holding me back is Freddie - it's a great name but it so popular that it's been slightly ruined for me. Also I am not keen on Fred. So I waver on whether I would actually use it, despite loving it one thousand times more than any other boys' name!

NomDeClavier Wed 11-Dec-13 12:15:30

I love it and know one nn Rick but it's DH's deceased brother so we can't use it.

Don't like old man names sorry, and not keen on any names that end in ie after a certain age.

ilovespinach Fri 13-Dec-13 21:34:18

Love it! I have a Frederick known as Fred hardly ever Freddie.
