I love, but many do not...

I am really sorry, am in the do not camp. But some people don't like the name we chose for our DC - you just have to pick what is right for you...

I like it as a nn, how about Jackson - Sonny for short.

ellenjames Tue 23-Dec-14 17:33:03

It is dc2's middle name as dh wanted it but I really didn't like it for a first name

Bowlersarm Tue 23-Dec-14 17:34:44

I don't like it sorry, it sounds more like a noise than a name.

I think it's ok- but ( and I hate the deciding on nn before birth thing) but it's one of those names that if you use anything else you can later try it out as a nn

I love Sonny!

Sounds like a nickname: I'm in the NO camp.

marne2 Tue 23-Dec-14 18:42:32

I love it.

How is it pronounced?

No. Sounds like something that an old man would call a young chap- like Laddy.

If I didn't have to consider DH's feelings then DS1 would have been Sonny. If I'd have chosen it is probably still like it but I'm much less keen now.

My cousin is Salvatore. His nn is Sonny (don't know why because I'd have thought it would have been Sally).

Lovely name for a boy grin

Crownjewel Tue 23-Dec-14 19:10:23

Personally I wouldn't choose it for my DC but I do know a little Sonny, who suits his name down to the ground - a lovely, cheerful, sunny little chap! OP, if you like it, who gives a monkeys whether anyone else does or doesn't? He's your DC, not theirs - I say go for it.

Nope - I wouldn't. Cute until he hits adolescence then he'll probably hate it. I suppose you could always give him the middle name Jim, then he could use that when he got past 11. But, just my opinion.

bubalou Tue 23-Dec-14 19:22:02

I would have said no ... however

Ds's friend at school has a little brother called Sonny. It's really cute and suits him well.

I don't go 'Eugh' when I say it like some of the kids names.

(Will not say them because parents with children of said names might take offence)

Absolutely awful. Cringeworthy.

PandaNot Tue 23-Dec-14 19:23:51

I quite like it but it's my cat's name!

WheresMeJumperOhNo Tue 23-Dec-14 19:24:12

How about Samson, Sonny for short? Gives him the option to use Sam, also.

LizzieVereker Tue 23-Dec-14 19:28:39

I've taught several Sonnys - all delightful, without exception. It's a great name.

TheOriginalWinkly Tue 23-Dec-14 19:29:48

It makes me think of this song. That makes it a big no for me.

No, don't like. In the same box as buddy, teddy... Next it will be Sport.
