What do you think? Sidney for his birth certificate name but he will go by Sid. All input welcome smile

Love it.

Quite nice really. I can't help but think of Ricky from East Enders though. But yeah, I can see it making a comeback.

Hmmm. I kinda like Sidney but when I say 'Sid' out loud, it sounds too short and harsh, like I've stopped mid-name. Could be my accent though.

Mmm, I like it. It's a "grower" I fancy.

TomsBentPinky Sun 28-Oct-12 18:11:23

SoulTrain Sun 28-Oct-12 18:11:50

Blimey Tom. sad

TomsBentPinky Sun 28-Oct-12 18:12:33

I dind't mean to offend, she asked and thats what I thought sad

I'll ask for my post to be deleted,

very sorry.

tanfastic Sun 28-Oct-12 18:12:44

I like it.smile

TomsBentPinky Sun 28-Oct-12 18:13:29

Have asked for my post to be deleted blush

SoulTrain Sun 28-Oct-12 18:18:09

I wouldn't ask for it to be deleted, your post wasn't offensive. It was just probably the last thing the OP had thought of that the name made her think of. No harm done. smile - OP did ask for all views!

Strawhatpirate Sun 28-Oct-12 18:18:25

Don't worry Tom! All input welcome smile

There's a Sid in DS1's class and I really like the name smile

I have a DN called Sidney Ann which is great too smile

There's a lovely Sid in the year above DD1 at school (he's 5). I know his full name is Sidney.

I really like it. It's cool in an insouciant and non-try hard way and I think it works well for both child and adult.

DinosaursOnASpaceship Sun 28-Oct-12 18:39:29

I'm not sure what the deleted post was, put my first thought at seeing the word Sid was probably the same. Sorry.

maxybrown Sun 28-Oct-12 18:44:32

Min is Ice Age grin but I love it

Ham69 Sun 28-Oct-12 18:44:40

I think it's a really cool name for a boy. I knew a baby with that name years ago and thought how lovely it was. The deleted post comment didn't come to mind at all. Maybe if it was plural and spelt in capitals, otherwise, wouldn't cross my mind. Love Sidney too.

maxybrown Sun 28-Oct-12 18:44:54

My first thought I meant

Strawhatpirate Sun 28-Oct-12 18:49:24

Thanks everyone!

BananaBubbles Sun 28-Oct-12 20:41:51

It's a no from me.It has an ugly harsh sound that doesn't belong on a lovely baby.

cashmerewebsandspidersheads Sun 28-Oct-12 20:48:51

I know a little boy Sydney- Syd. Suits him.
A family member has a George Sidney/Sydney too.

Love Sidney not so keen on Sid.

I don't like it at all. And my first thought was, I imagine, the same as Tom's deleted post.
