Which do you prefer and why?

Jedidiah so he can be called Jed.

Jedidiah always sounds slightly like the person saying it has a speech impediment to me - sorry!

JanuaryJuniper Sat 11-Feb-17 21:03:49

Oh yes love Jed and Jedi (don't care if we look like Star Wars fans)

I like both, I think Otis is a bit easier to get through life with, shorter and easier to say.

Just cal him Jed.

KatieScarlett Sat 11-Feb-17 21:06:58

Otis is uplifting

Otis, by far.

TheLegendOfBeans Sat 11-Feb-17 21:08:56

Otis is lovely. I met a little 6 mo Otis today and he was the most beautiful, chubby, smiley baby.

Jedediah of corse.

Jedi for short.

Otis is a cat's name anyway.

Otis ❤️

Not keen on Jedediah. It's a mouthful.

Otis is.... ubiquitous. But nice enough.

Jed reminds me of Jed from Oklahoma!

Jedediah love Jed.

Otis. I like both though. Jedediah is quite a lot of syllables which somehow makes it sounds fussier, but I do like it. Otis is cooler.

Jedidiah is a bit of a mouthful, and you can guarantee the 'didiah' part would be discarded within days and he'd be universally known as Jed. grin So I prefer Otis

Otis, unless you are from Utah.

Blossomdeary Sat 11-Feb-17 21:51:55

* KatieScarlett * - love that! grin

I think both names leave a great deal to be desired, especially the one that sounds a though your false teeth are falling out.

ExpectoPatronummmm Sat 11-Feb-17 21:58:30

Otis is a well known lift manafacturer

Jedidiah sounds like you're a morman living on what if those crazy cult camps in America where they don't have tv or phones etc

Pmsl at "leaves a lot to be desired" well that told me wink

RedSauce Sat 11-Feb-17 22:12:45

Otis! I love Otis.

JanuaryJuniper Sat 11-Feb-17 22:16:09

I'm probably leaning towards Otis as dh loves it and doesn't like Jedidiah, I would be happy with either!
