Any opinions welcome smile

Short for Jonathan.

Not as a stand alone name.

Tommy Tue 18-Feb-14 12:33:00

in my head it always means a condom - sorry grin

LynetteScavo Tue 18-Feb-14 12:34:31

Johnny, we're sorry, won't you come on home.

I like it. I also like Jonathan, but not John.

CurlyKiwiControl Tue 18-Feb-14 12:35:14

Maybe all opinions apart from "not on the bc" type and condom types though grin

I love the name Johnny.

Johnny Cash
Johnny Marr
Johnny Depp
Johnny Ramone

And is there a better song than Johnny B.Goode?? No there isn't!

CurlyKiwiControl Tue 18-Feb-14 12:37:16

I agree squooch, it's pretty cool me thinks

squoosh Tue 18-Feb-14 12:38:01

Jonathan is vile though. Nothing wrong with John.

Bowlersarm Tue 18-Feb-14 12:38:50

Is that your way of saying it would be a stand alone

It sounds incomplete if that's it in it's entirety. Definitely a nickname sort of name.

I know of a few young Johnnys - toddler through to teens. It's nice. Sporty and cool.

Ragwort Tue 18-Feb-14 12:39:56

Yes, I like it smile

CurlyKiwiControl Tue 18-Feb-14 12:41:36

In a round about way, yes, it's s stand alone name bowlersarm smile

5madthings Tue 18-Feb-14 12:41:47

johnny test... kids tb show, my boys like it.

perfectly ok name smile

Onesleeptillwembley Tue 18-Feb-14 12:44:20

Agreed - a condom. Also know a seriously creepy adult Johnny.

CurlyKiwiControl Tue 18-Feb-14 12:45:02

"Heeeere's johnnnnny!" grin

CurlyKiwiControl Tue 18-Feb-14 12:46:39

My Johnny won't be creepy shock

Sundaedelight Tue 18-Feb-14 12:59:36

Love the name Johnny.

UriGeller Tue 18-Feb-14 13:03:22

Very cool. Very. I know two Jonnies. One is an artist. The other is a gorgeous, blond haired surfer dude.

A Johnnie proposed to me once. He was lovely. I like it a lot.

CurlyKiwiControl Tue 18-Feb-14 13:13:23

Boden good? Boden bad?

Brilliant to hear of these cool j's ...

MauriceMinor Tue 18-Feb-14 13:44:49

Love it. I know an adorable toddler called Johnny! Uncommon without being weird.

Definitely use John though. Jonathan is a ridiculous name. Like Susanathon or Charlottathon. Just unnecessary.

CaipirinhasAllRound Tue 18-Feb-14 14:00:44

If our baby is a boy he'll be Jonny, hadn't thought about those other famous Johnnies above, our inspiration initially was Jonny Wilkinson!

NadiaWadia Tue 18-Feb-14 18:14:56

I like Jonathan! John is fine, but maybe a bit plain and short?

ToffeeJungle Tue 18-Feb-14 18:29:59

I don't like it though you obviously do so that's what matters.

Pinkandwhite Tue 18-Feb-14 18:38:26

It's an awesome name. I know a very cool Johnny though so I'm sure I'm influenced in part by that. I also really like Jonathan and John. Jonathan is a good, strong, employable name (I never care whether a name sounds 'employable' but my husband always thinks of this...) and Johnny is a very cool nn.
