I love Ted/Teddy with Theodore as full name

Teddy, with either Edward or Theodore on the birth certificate.

Teddy (as a shortening of a longer name). For some reason, I think Freddys are naughty / disruptive!

Teddy

By a country mile

Really dislike Freddy

icantgetnosleep5 Sun 30-Oct-16 19:43:07

would u use th full names on the BC?
i like both edward/ theodore or frederick , with teddy/freddy nicknames
A teenager/ man would probably want a more serious name as he got older.
My son is ten and already sensitive to any nicknames in public. There's a William in his class who th kids call Willy and who often cries as a result !
I think boys are more self conscious

Either <not helpful>

Presumably Teddy or Freddy would call themselves Ted or Fred if they wanted a more 'grown-up' name, regardless of whether they had short or longer version on the birth certificate.

On that logic, I think I might choose Freddy, because I (somewhat) prefer Fred to Ted. But either are good solid names.

Freddy!

Freddy!

Iamthecatsmother Sun 30-Oct-16 22:54:21

Definitely Teddy

Theirs absolutely no need to use a fuller version both can be stand alone names.

We have a teddy (on his birth cert too) love love love it on him and for some reason everyone tends to remember his name! He's 4!
