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.

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.

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.

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

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 ☺️

Awful for a grown man. Cute for an under 5

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

It’s like calling a child “Youngfellermelad”

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

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

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

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

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.

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