If you don't like any, why comment? grin it's our final list, so isn't helpful.

Thanks everyone!

I agree OP, if someone doesn't have a preference why comment. It's stupid at best, unkind at worst.

We would spell it Freddy... Not Freddie smile

Thank you, Through!

My gs is Freddie but either spelling is nice!!

Danny is the least childish sounding of them, so if you're registering exactly as these names rather than full names, I'd go with that.

TimmysBrother, you need to go for Danny 😄😄😄
I have one, he's amazing !

TimmysBrother Fri 07-Oct-16 20:18:53

I thought Johnny sounded the most 'grown up', although I think all of them would become Ben, Dan, Fred, etc. smile

Definitely not Benny.

I think Freddy and Johnny seem most like complete names, if that makes sense? They're lovely. To me Danny and Benny feel more like nicknames (not a criticism!). Also Benny reminds me too much of Benny Hill! Which might be a pleasant connotation for some but for me, not really.

Johnny is second place in terms of adultness, true. I do know two Jons who used to be Jonnys though and both chose to change at about 15/16.

But yeah, if we assume they're all gonna drop the y, then Dan is still best. Or maybe Ben actually. Benny is horrible though.

TimmysBrother Fri 07-Oct-16 20:25:22

Seems like Benny is the worst choice - I think I agree, the more I say it.

TimmysBrother Fri 07-Oct-16 20:27:08

Timmy is still Timmy, but does get Tim, so he'll probably use that when he's older.

I know Timmy isn't liked on Mumsnet, so was a bit nervous about admitting I have one! grin

We liked other names beginning with T, but think it begins to sound like they're a couple of cartoons, as they would match just too much.

Freddy is the nicest out of a bad bunch.

Benny is from Crossroads, bit of a simple chap for those who are too you g to have seen it, not really the sort connotation you're looking for, I suspect.
There are lots of Freddies around, so I'd go for Johnny , or maybe Danny.
