None. Edward, Thomas or Frederick, in that order.

Tommy, I have one grin

Just to clarify, do you mean as a full name or would you put something else on the birth certificate OP?

I think if you want to use them as full names, of the three, I'd go with Tommy. Freddie and Teddy are nice nns but are quite 'of the moment' names I think, so maybe will date a bit. Tommy seems a bit less trendy maybe but in a good way iyswim.

For full names smile

I prefer the Freddy spelling, just makes more sense to me!

Tommy seems to be winning

DS1 is Alfred nn Freddie, that might work?

Tommy is nice then. Also, just something to consider is that they might end up being shortened to Tom, Fred or Ted so if you like / dislike any of those that might help you decide --on Tommy--grin.

Honestly, they are all a bit 'cheeky chappy' for my taste.

LaurieLemons Fri 02-Sep-16 13:20:22

I really like Tommy

Caipora Fri 02-Sep-16 13:28:11

I prefer Freddy. But I don't like Fred or Ted. I prefer Tom. He will not stay a Tommy, Teddy or Freddy. He will inevitably become either Ted, Fred or Tom.

Teddy is really popular!
I like Freddy the most.

i like Freddie its a nice nickname to Frederick.My mother put josephine on the birth certificate so it looked formal and called me phina day to day

Tommy also nice short for Thomas

I don't like any of them but I do like Thomas or Tom.

So, Tommy as it can be shortened to the nicest name.

mollie123 Sat 03-Sep-16 07:35:04

to me Tommy - has WW1 overtones
why not call the baby by one of the full names (Thomas, Frederick or Edward) and then you can shorten it how you like. hmm

LottieDoubtie Sat 03-Sep-16 07:36:12

Teddy but I would use Edward.

katemess12 Sat 03-Sep-16 10:16:08

Tommy is the only one that works as a full name, IMO.

Hate Teddy as both a full name and a nickname. I have no idea why I dislike this name so much. I can only imagine the teasing a boy named Teddy would get.

I think Freddie is sweet but I prefer Fred and prefer it as a shortening for Frederick, which is lovely and underused.
