Jed, I knew someone called Jed and he was really smart, handsome and all round good guy!

Also knew a wee lad called Jos - totally suited his name no idea what it might have been short (joseph maybe?) for but I've had a soft spot for the name since!

Josiah, nn Jed <West Wing nut>

He looks like an Eddie to me. Huge boy!!

What would Jet be short for though?

Not Jed - I know a Jed, he's 3 and a nasty bully angry

WhatWouldVegansDo Fri 28-Sep-12 21:32:54

Or there's Chet. Could be short for Chester.

I know a Boy called Gem.
jet reminds me of a little kid in a baseball kit for some reason.
Jed reminds me of somebody sitting with a guitar getting stoned. confused I'm sure I must have deeply buried memories, but for the life of me I couldn't tell you why.

She should get some sleep then think of some names which won't cause her son to be ridiculed for the rest of his life!

I know a James nn Jazz. He's in his 50 and hot cool.

Jeramiah is nice and could be either of those names, I think? Im sure she will give it awhile to get to know him, although if the girls have their way he will be Justin Bieber smile

Jet is cool! Jed isn't imo - reminds me of Jedward.

Jet strikes me as the sort of name a teenager would choose because they thought it was cool. Jed is OK as a nn although the obvious name that comes to mind for the long form is Jedidiah which is fairly awful really.

More constructively, what about Jerome or Jeremy? Justin's not so bad grin

A Jed is in bed,
And the bed of a Jed,
Is the softest of beds in the world,
It is said.

He makes it from pompoms,
He grows on his head,
He's sleeping right now,
On the softest of fluff,
Completely exhausted,
From growing the stuff...

(From Dr Seuss's Sleep Book)
