Any thoughts as to Sid - I love it, but do not know (or know of) a single one, and worry that it's for a reason grin

Mind, I dont know anyone with DDs name (M e g) and I didnt worry about that.

Happy to hear any and all opinions!

I know a 2 year old called Sid.

I was a bit hmm when I first heard what they'd called him but I have to admit that it really suits him.

If you like it then go for it OP.

As a medic, it just makes me think of Sudden Infant Death (SID)i.e. Cot death. But maybe I'm just weird.

I know a little Sidney, I quite like it.

Not personally keen on Sid - I know one girl called Sydney who goes by the name "Syd". Not my taste at all. Don't know any young male Sids though.

FWIW, I know lots of Megs as it was very popular when my DCs were born.

I love Sid.

KatoPotato Wed 19-Feb-14 22:10:44

I think 'Siiidddddd' from Carry on films

A very cool young mum I know called her son Sidney - so it must be uber cool!!

I was randomly thinking about whether i like it as a name or not today and the verdict is positive!!

It makes me think of the character in Ice Age. Sorry.

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 19-Feb-14 22:21:11

I bloody love Ice Age!

Mrsindecision Wed 19-Feb-14 22:27:01

If you love it you should go for it! Don't listen to a load of strangers opinions on the Internet!

Meg and Sid do sound good together I must admit. smile

lanbro Wed 19-Feb-14 22:29:25

The lads who work for me call each other Sid when they're taking the piss out of each other, but I must admit I have no idea why!

Love it

Would it be Sydney with Sid for short, or just Sid. (Applying the High Court Judge rule Sydney works well, as long as you then don't mind folks asking if that is where he was conceived!)

I like it. I like Ice Age too!

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 19-Feb-14 22:33:34

Just Sid.

bouquetofpencils Wed 19-Feb-14 22:42:52

I know two Sids. One age 7 and one a newborn. Both adorable.

soaccidentprone Wed 19-Feb-14 23:02:58

I have an uncle Sid. I've always thought it is a great name.

BirthdayMuppet Wed 19-Feb-14 23:05:41

Really don't like it, but then I'm not a fan of most 'grandad chic' names as to my ears they're anything but chic. There's a little chap called Jim in the Reception class at my sons' school and I just can't get my head around it.

sebsmummy1 Wed 19-Feb-14 23:08:21

I like Sidney, but just Sid on it's own is a bit weird.

RalphRecklessCardew Thu 20-Feb-14 07:42:18

Agreed.Sidney nn Sid is great.

BalloonSlayer Thu 20-Feb-14 07:51:21

I know one!

I think it's a fab name, but I didn't know him as a baby so I suspect if I would have been shock at a baby called Sid.

But that's the point - they are not babies for long are they?

BalloonSlayer Thu 20-Feb-14 07:52:55

Sid and Meg does make me think of the teleporter poem in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy tho, although I expect you'd have to be a nerd to remember that. blush

Rooble Thu 20-Feb-14 07:53:43

I know two, both in reception (different schools, same city). Would Sid be the full name or short for Sidney?

meditrina Thu 20-Feb-14 07:55:42

I think it's a lovely name, but would use Sidney on BC.
