Baby David

Definitely David. DH is one and when people call him Dave (often pronounced Dive) it makes my ears shrivel.

You can always use Dave as a nickname

People will assume his full name is David anyway

Because Dave is now a TV channel I definitely wouldn't call him that!

David is lovely though.

Definitely David, Dave is a salesman, circa that Fry and Laurie tv series.

David, then you/he can shorten it how he likes.

Dave is a 40 year old man with a receding hair line and a beer belly.

I have two David's in my family, neither are shortened to Dave

Not sure of either, to be honest....

Both awful.

David is a classic, albeit currently somewhat dated, name.

Dave is a name that doesn't do anyone any favours.

Gruffalosfriend Thu 24-Nov-16 13:02:35

David is a great underused name!

I don't like Dave or even less Davy, sorry.

Baby Dave!!! 😂 Absolutely /crying/ laughing at that...tbf, I suppose lots of babies do look like Daves, with the baldness, pot bellies, etc...

For some reason I just really dislike the shortening to dave!
