I can't stand Ted/Teddy.

We have a Jonny who is just Jonny not John. I love it
Don't like Teddy

No, would be Ted on BC.

Wouldn't be Jonny either confused

Johnny. Teddy sounds very babyish.

Although at least people are less likely to use other spellings for Teddy.

Johnny with John on BC.

I don't like Ted.

Johnny / John.

NannyR Tue 13-Jun-17 23:13:29

Johnny with John on BC definitely. Teddy sounds very young and cutesy and Ted on the BC is still a nickname.

It's going to be your child's nickname, so I'm sure they'll get to choose if they prefer Jonny or Johnny.

I prefer Ted

Presumably Jonny would come from Jon/Jonathan, and Johnny would come from John.

I know a gorgeous Ted. Its a lovely name.

Pemba Wed 14-Jun-17 02:34:24

John then. Teddy is babyish, OK for a toddler only, and Ted sounds unfinished if you won't put Edward on the BC. Quite like John actually, it's underused these days.

I like Edward (I know you said no suggestions-sorry!) and Ted is ok as a diminutive of Edward but really dislike Teddy.

Johnny. Ds2 was nearly John.
