My DS has Leonard as a middle name, as it is my dads name and my was also my grandad's name, and I wanted to pass it on to my son. I did feel it was a bit old fashioned to give him as a first name, but I actually think its making a comeback. Both my dad and grandad were Len for short.
DH loves Len/Lenny. I love Len but am not keen on Leonard. I would prefer a "proper" name to be registered on the birth cert so have been thinking of alternatives. I do quite like Lennon but I'm not sure whether this sounds a bit chavvy.
My questions really are; do you think I could get away with Len as a name by itself? What are your thoughts on Lennon? Can you think of any other names where Len could be the nn?
