My son is 3 weeks old.

Thoughts on Johnny? We are really struggling!

Jonathan is nice.

Vicky1201 Fri 04-Nov-16 18:29:00

Not keen on Jonathan!

It would be Johnny smile

Could it be John, on paper, everyday name Johnny ?

Sophronia Fri 04-Nov-16 19:27:32

I like it, but I'd use John as the full name

WhiskyTangoFoxtrot Fri 04-Nov-16 19:27:43

It's ok, but I'm sure I won't be the only one thinking 'condom'

So this is one that is better as nn than given name

Johnny is slang for condom. Rubber Johnny.

Stick to John.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Fri 04-Nov-16 22:44:51

Also thinking condoms here, sorry

I have a Jonny but it is a nn for Jonathan. He says he likes it as he has option of Jonathan, Jonny and John depending on the situation. (He's a teen now). He has never had anyone say about condoms to his face - well so he says.

I love the name. DH didn't. He used the condom slang to make me doubt it.

I would use John (and did, but as a mn)

Johnny is a great name.

Ignore all the 'condom' people. Johnny Cash, Johnny Depp and Johnny Marr seemed to have coped just fine!

(Jonathan is horrible)

I like Johnny but he will go through his teenage years with condom jokes

I teach Chinese ESL students- one of them is called Johnny Kok grin

My brother is a 40 something Johnny and I've never heard him mention any condom gags regarding his name. confused

Blackpoollassy Sun 06-Nov-16 03:40:01

Rubber ....

CheerfulYank Sun 06-Nov-16 03:45:05

I like Johnny but only as a nn for John or Jonathan.

Pluto30 Sun 06-Nov-16 03:50:44

Never heard of it as a term for condom here...

I like it. It's on my list as a standalone, primarily because it goes well with my surname whereas just John doesn't. I don't like Jonathan because I've known several and none of them go by Johnny. Two are Jono (as in Bono), one is Jonty, and the other is always Jonathan.
