I also like Teddy but I don't like any long names to get Teddy as a nn. Eduardo is the favourite but I am cautious of nn "Eddy" which I can't stand.

Theodore is a long name that gets shortened to Ted or Teddy a lot .
(Like president Theodore Roosevelt of the US who was always known as Teddy, and hence the teddy bear).

I wouldn't fancy any of your list names.

I was going to come on and say Luca to go with your dds names but I see you have a shortlist. Dillon is the only one I like of those, Cuba and Monaco I really dislike as names, sorry.

Ooh I came on to say Luca too!

Sofia and Monaco/Cuba sounds like you have some kind of place name trend thing going on.

Eduardo is the best of that lot.

madam it really goes doesn't it!

Eduardo is the best of your list, in part because like Emilia and Sofia it is a proper Italian name.

Cuba and Monaco sound as though you are trying too hard and they don't go.

Dillon, why go Welsh/US at this point?

Luca, Marco, Giovanni, gianni, Iago, Francisco, jeronimo, Jacopo, Theo..Raimondo, Hugo, Alberto, Alfredo, Claudio,

Teddy is a nn for Theodore, Edward, Edmund.

Funny, I thought Luca too!
OP, call him Luca!

Of your list Eduardo or maybe Dillion (will be called Dylan..)
No to Monaco or Cuba. Def no.

Eduardo is by far the best on your list. Ted/Teddy are also nn for Edward so at a push you could also use them as nn for Eduardo? Not keen on Dillon. Cuba and Monaco are horrific, sorry. Luca is lovely.

Lorenzo - nn Enzo

I came on here to suggest Luca too grin

catlover91 Mon 05-Oct-15 17:39:12

I don't know if I could warm to Luca and I wouldn't like him to be called Luke as nn are there any longer names to get Luca as nn? I also don't want to only have names ending in A because I feel that if I have more I'll be restricted to A endings so they are not 'left out' if I make any sense. I am open to other suggestions that match the girls names!!

I agree with you about not making a thing out of A endings.

Edgar (all of these could give you Ted or Teddy as a nn)


(all have decent nicknames)

I think I like the sound of Emilia, Sofia and Freddie (or Teddy)

Of your list I prefer Eduardo. Otherwise:

I think Oliver goes well... x

WomanScorned Tue 03-Nov-15 00:30:00

I'm not hugely keen on any of them - sorry blush
But I do like Edward, Edgar, and Edmund, so would go with Eduardo, from your list. Any of the above could give you Ted/Teddy.
I prefer some of those suggested above, particularly Xavier and Dante.

Haha... came on to suggest Luca smile like half of PPs!
