Do you like Theodore? Personally I like Theo, but dislike Theodore, so I wouldn't - and I'm someone who would always put the full versions of Ollie/Freddie/Alfie et al on BC. Theo seems like a proper name to me though, so fine on BC.

Yes I do like it smile

Theodore could lead to the nickname Teddy if you wanted?

I'd put Theodore on the birth certificate.

Yes I definitely would,gives him more options when he's older-he could be Theo, Theodore or Teddy, all of which are rather lovely smile x

No, not unless you like the name. Theo is a perfectly sensible and proper name. I've a short name as my full name and have never wanted another option, my name is my name. I'm not going to start calling myself something different!

Yes, I think it's nice to have the full name as an option.

I love Theo, such a great name, personally I don't like Theodore, so just Theo I would say. I am sorry but I can't stand Teddy or Bear, but that is just me. It's a little bit like the name Charlie, that is their name, not many are Charles on BC in my experience.

Theodore. I always prefer full names on BCs.

MiniMaxi Wed 28-Jun-17 16:59:35

Personally I would but only if you like the name (even if you don't plan to use it day to day)

Or Theobald wink

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 28-Jun-17 22:34:22

I prefer Theo,

revolution909 Wed 28-Jun-17 22:39:45

Yup I would! As someone said either Theodore or Theobald

Lemondrop99 Wed 28-Jun-17 23:09:25

I always prefer the long version on the BC to give more choices.

I wouldn't use Theon though! Nice name, terrible associations though
