Because why not? More options is always better than less.

Theodore makes me think of the character in the chipmunks (sorry!)

I've got a Theodore which we shorten to Theo or T. Full names are always handy for letting children know you're serious about telling them offsmile

I'd put Theodore on BC and use Theo day to day.

Theodore, nickname Theo. Best of both worlds.

I love the name.

I'm still bitter PA used it for his son sad

Theo, because his name is always going to be shortened to that anyway.

I would go for Theodore, as you (and he when he's older) have more choices of what to call him. I think Theo is lovely but also Teddy as a nickname.

If you intend to always call him Theo, then Theodore may be unnecessary. One poster on here mentioned once that she sometimes calls her Theo "Theodorable," which I thought was lovely.

Would you ever call him Theodore, or always Theo?

Theodore, so he can choose later.

Theodore is at the top of my list if we have a boy but DH isn't keen because we have a friend called Theo and he thinks it would be weird.
