My nephew is called Sonni and he is the only kid with this name so he's memorable and popular.

I'm sorry, but I think it's awful.

SallyCinnamon3009 Mon 21-Oct-19 17:02:36

Love it

Absolutely not, unless you live in the deep south in 1950.

I love this name. I knew one once and he was a beautiful shining child. Great name.

OtraCosaMariposa Mon 21-Oct-19 17:05:55

Awful name. Although if you have a girl, you could use Daughtery.

"I love this name. I knew one once and he was a beautiful shining child. Great name"

I've never got this rationalisation. You'd hate the name if you knew an arsehole with it - you only like the name because of the person it's attached to.

I like it, but I think better as a middle name.

RosaRi Mon 21-Oct-19 17:23:50

I really like it

RatherBeRiding Mon 21-Oct-19 17:24:23

Not for me - I know several Sonnys who are horses.

PlasticPatty Mon 21-Oct-19 17:25:45

Horrible. Disrespectful term from an older man to a younger.

My friend has a boy named Sonny. I didn't like it at first but he suited it soooo much! Love it now ☺️

RuthW Mon 21-Oct-19 17:34:49

Awful for a grown man. Cute for an under 5

EmpressLesbianInChair Mon 21-Oct-19 17:43:39

It’s always going to be a little boy’s name.

BertrandRussell Mon 21-Oct-19 17:46:24

It’s like calling a child “Youngfellermelad”

Wolfiefan Mon 21-Oct-19 17:47:39

Sonny Jim.
No. Hate it.

MissHenty Mon 21-Oct-19 17:48:45

I think it’s a gorgeous name. Not wacky. Soft but manly. I think I’m biased because I know one who is a gorgeous little boy and really suits his name

MissHenty Mon 21-Oct-19 17:49:26

Once you hear it a couple of times you don’t think of the “son” reference. It’s just a name in its own right

CoolcoolcoolcoolcoolNoDoubt Mon 21-Oct-19 17:52:21

Yeah I know a Sonny and I love it as a shortened version of his full name.

anyoldvic Mon 21-Oct-19 17:53:42

It's a nickname for a small boy, not a take-me-seriously name for a grown-up.

DisappointingBanana Mon 21-Oct-19 18:58:05

Awful. A traditional moniker for a young boy used by someone older; it could be affectionate or disparaging. It was never an actual name, though.

And it’d be ridiculous on a middle aged man.

Raphael34 Mon 21-Oct-19 18:59:33

I’ve got a sonny. I love it 🥰

mrspotatohed Mon 21-Oct-19 19:01:23

I'm having a girl but would've picked Sonny if she was a boy.

Shadow1234 Mon 21-Oct-19 19:41:17

Love it.
