My favourite uncle was called this - I like it.

My nephew is a sonny, at first I was hmm but now I love it, he's such a sweet and happy boy and it really suits him.

Big yes from me. Unusual and cute. I liked both this and Sol for DS but DP refused

Would a 50 year old man really want to be called Sonny?

he's such a sweet and happy boy and it really suits him

But what about when he's a grumpy old man?

EdWinchester Mon 21-Oct-19 20:34:47

It's a silly nickname. Ludicrous on an adult.

Prefer Sonny to Sonni.

But really don’t like either as a forename -as a PP said, it’s cute on a very young child but (to my ears) faintly ridiculous for a grown man.

AdaColeman Mon 21-Oct-19 20:38:28

It's alright for a toddler, but I don't think it works well for an adult.

FriedasCarLoad Mon 21-Oct-19 20:43:26

Meant to add:

Given it’s cute on a young child, it’d make an adorable nickname.

Makes me think of a Walkman.

Lovely name x

Needs the middle name "Jim" of course.

My last dog was called Sunny, would have possibly used it for a child’s name if I hadn’t used it first for the dog.

EdWinchester Mon 21-Oct-19 20:47:20

Sonni is even worse. Silly name with idiotic spelling.

Children with these types of name can be memorable for the wrong reasons.

The naughtiest child I ever met, now completely off the rails as a teen is called Sonny.

GeoffreyAndBungle Mon 21-Oct-19 20:58:29

I think it's cute for a toddler but don't think it works for a teen or adult.

The only Sonny I know isn't 'sunny' at all - rather miserable in fact.

Sorry, it's a big no from me.

It makes me think of the expression 'alright son?'

Appalling, and demeaning and humiliating for your child, teenager, 50-something, etc. Use it as a nickname.

devilishlygood Tue 22-Oct-19 20:21:21

Absolutely LOVE it, right under Rudy as our second choice if we have a boy next week!! 😊
