Bloody awful.

Fine as a nickname for a young boy; cringeworthy as the real, official actual name of a grown man.

I've got a nephew called Sonny. He does have a longer/different name on his birth certificate to use when older if preferred, but from birth he's been called Sonny by all. His full name is Italian (father has Italian family).

My little one is Sonny (hence my name) lol it's not for everyone but I love it and have had loads of compliments on his name.

Sorry, cringingly awful.

It's beyond ridiculous. Please don't inflict a "name" like this on your child.

My Grandad’s name. ❤️ Very popular in the East end in the 40s/50s. Also very popular in Hoxton in the late 90s! 😂 I like it, but it is a bit try-hard now.

Sounds like an American nickname

I think Sonny is a shortening of Alexander... so you could call him Alexander on official documents & Sonny as his day to day name.

I did have an Uncle Sonny...,,
