Just Jed, not short for anything.
What do you think?

WestEast Sat 07-Feb-15 21:16:40

All the yes's

Asleeponasunbeam Sat 07-Feb-15 21:17:52

I really love it. Would have loved it for DS but had a J name for DD so couldn't.

coldtoe Sat 07-Feb-15 21:22:52

I was bracing myself for negativity.... Not sure why.
Is Jed better than Ned? Also as a full name

DramaAlpaca Sat 07-Feb-15 21:25:07

I really like it.

And yes, Jed is better than Ned.

Asleeponasunbeam Sat 07-Feb-15 21:25:33

It's loads better than Ned. And Ted, and Fred.

I like it as a standalone name but also LOVE Jeremy (again, couldn't use it because of the alliteration which we didn't want).

Perhaps those of us who view it negatively were politely withholding comment. It's not for me, but then I had a loathsome boy in my class at school whose name was.. You guessed it.. Jed.

LegArmpits Sat 07-Feb-15 21:28:45

I love it so much it makes me want to have another boy so I can use it (almost.)

coldtoe Sat 07-Feb-15 21:30:12

Yes, I also went to school with a terror called Jed. He's the only one I've ever known so I'm trying to shake the greasy urchin image and replace it. Surfer dude Jed?

Slang around here for head of penis, so difficult to get beyond that.

coldtoe Sat 07-Feb-15 21:43:30

Whereabouts are you?

Smugnogplease Sat 07-Feb-15 21:43:51

My nephew is Jed (1) and I know a 11 yr old one too. Fab name!

Frecklefeatures Sat 07-Feb-15 21:44:39

Known 2 Jeds. Both were little tearaways who are now big tearaways/been convicted of crimes.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 07-Feb-15 21:54:27

It makes me think of very, very religious Americans.

StayGoldPonyBoy Sat 07-Feb-15 21:57:51

I know a Jed. He's a tosser, he was that boy at school who thinks he's great at everything. He's a slimy car salesman now which suits himgrin

Also just makes me think of Jeddadiah(sp?) Very Duggar.

Allstoppedup Sat 07-Feb-15 22:04:37

It's my friends husbands name and I really like it.

It sounds really strong and cool.

Another yes!

Leeds2 Sat 07-Feb-15 22:16:19

It is my favourite boys' name. I don't have a son but, if I had had, I don't know whether I would've been bold enough to use it. Can never decide whether I would spell it Jed or Ged.

Rhubarbgarden Sat 07-Feb-15 22:30:12

Not my cup of tea.

Sparklingbrook Sat 07-Feb-15 22:33:45

First thought=Jedward. sad

AuntieStella Sat 07-Feb-15 22:36:01

I really would see it as a NN

The ones I know in RL are Jeremy. The silver screen is Jedidiah.

And yes, Jedward.

twinjocks Sat 07-Feb-15 23:44:20

Love it (well, it is my DS13's name!!).

Coldtoe - Central Scotland

coldtoe Sun 08-Feb-15 12:58:40

At this rate I will never be able to visit Scotland again as Jed and Ned are front runners!

coldtoe Sun 08-Feb-15 12:59:33

People who own a Jed or know young ones - would anyone mind sharing sibling names?

wtffgs Sun 08-Feb-15 13:00:17

Jed = Jed Bartlet!!!
Ned = a donkey grin
