I really need opinions on this, I love Teddy, but I know it probably isn't suitable for an adult... I have considered all the other names it's a diminutive of, but I think they all have a more obvious NN (Ed/Eddie / Theo, etc.) smile

I think it's a bit silly, sorry. I like Theodore, and if you always call him Ted he probably wouldn't end up being Theo.

MissBattleaxe Tue 05-Jan-16 21:41:29

No I don't like it. Frederick or Theodore, but not a combo.

ThomasRichard Tue 05-Jan-16 21:41:31

He would be forever correcting people from 'Frederick'.

People will think you have made it up.

Meg3112 Tue 05-Jan-16 21:43:32

It really isn't made up... I've come across someone with this name smile

Agree, it seems a bit daft. Either call him Teddy as his full first name, or go for Theodore but introduce him to everyone as Teddy.

DickDewy Tue 05-Jan-16 21:46:28

I thought made up. Sounds silly.

Raxacoricofallapatorius Tue 05-Jan-16 21:46:41

I've come across someone with this name

Did you buy him a drink first?

Meg3112 Tue 05-Jan-16 21:47:00

Maybe I'll go with just Teddy then smile

I like Thaddeo/Thaddeus with the nickname Teddy

InitialsError Tue 05-Jan-16 21:48:05

It sounds very silly.

Why not just call him Ted, nickname Teddy, if you think Teddy by itself isn't great for an adult?

Meg3112 Tue 05-Jan-16 21:48:55

I would rather Teddy, on the BC, than Ted...

SevenOfNineTrue Tue 05-Jan-16 21:49:06

Sorry, don't like it. Go go for Theodore and shorten to Ted or Teddy.

Meg3112 Tue 05-Jan-16 21:49:43

DH and family really dislike Theodore

Reminds me of Baldrick, sorry!

I think Teddy on the birth certificate would be embarrassing for anyone over five, tbh.

Meg3112 Tue 05-Jan-16 22:05:54

I went to school with an Edward - he was always Teddy and still is... He says he wishes he was just Teddy, as doctors, etc. call him Edward

SlipperyJack Tue 05-Jan-16 22:06:25

What about Edric? A name with lots of history (Google "Wild Edric"). I wanted it for DS but DH vetoed it, the git.

xmasseason Tue 05-Jan-16 22:19:14

Winsted, or Halsted?

PurpleDaisies Tue 05-Jan-16 22:21:54

Teddy is ok, Tedrick is not.

Anything is better than Tedrick or Teddy on the BC.

Blu Wed 06-Jan-16 04:56:09

I rather like Tedrick.

Glastokitty Wed 06-Jan-16 05:06:39

Tedrick is ridic.

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Wed 06-Jan-16 05:13:50

Tedrick grin you're taking the piss, right?
