I did have an Uncle Sonny...,,

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

Sounds like an American nickname

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.

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

Sorry, cringingly awful.

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.

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).

Bloody awful.

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

Toojudgypants Tue 22-Oct-19 20:27:21

I like it.

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

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

Sorry, it's a big no from me.

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

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.

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

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

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

Sonni is even worse. Silly name with idiotic spelling.

GingerFoxInAT0phat Mon 21-Oct-19 20:46:21

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.

DisappointingBanana Mon 21-Oct-19 20:46:16

Needs the middle name "Jim" of course.

Lovely name x
