Ned (one of the shortened versions of Edward) ?

Love it was my choice if I had a boy

Reminds me of a book I had as a child about a donkeygrin Edward is a good name but I am not keen on any of the shorten versions of it, ted, eddy etc

Ned in Scotland is used to describe someone who might be a bit chavvy, so I wouldn't personally use it. If you are no where near scotland then it's probably fine.

I prefer Ted as a NN

Awful.It has an ugly sound,and here,Glasgow,it means 'thug' or 'chav'. It's best reserved for carthorses.

Edward is nice though.

Awful. It sounds like 'not' in German (nicht in a Hessian accent).

It makes me think of horses.

I prefer Ed or Eddie, or just Edward without a nickname. Ted is OK too, but Teddy is a toy's name.

Nooo, Ted/Teddy is far bettersmile

...agree with the horses commentgrin

No. Teddy is lovely as a nn for Edward though.

I also had 'Ned The Lonely Donkey' and it used to make me cry!
