I overheard the name Jed for a boy recently and really quite like it. I know it's a stand alone name but it seems a bit nick-namey to me and I prefer longer names. Can anyone think of a name it could be short for? or a nickname for?

In the West Wing it's short for Josiah

Ooh I quite like Gerard. Ged would be a nice spelling too. Not quite so keen on Jedediah.

The only Jed I have heard of is Jed Clampett from The Beverly Hillbillies.

It could be short for Jeremy. But I think you'd have to guide that one!

Dammit I came on to say jedward

I think Ged might get different pronounciations. I'd stay with the Jed spelling. I only know one when he was a little boy, he must be almost 30 now. He was just Jed not short for anything.

grin Jedward! Some people have been watching too much Celebrity Big Brother! 😂

I like Jeremy or Jared.

It just makes me think of Jedward!! 😂

I love Jed. I always think it is short for Jedidiah.

JC23 Wed 01-Feb-17 07:02:01

I would think Jeremy.
Jared is nice.
