What do you think of the name Freddie?

After months of deliberation, DH and I have decided to call our baby Frederick but will shorten it to Freddie day to day. His middle name has to be Alexander as it is a family thing.
Anyway, I've made the mistake of telling a few people and am really surprised at the number of them who absolutely hate it (and are so keen to tell me so ). I didn't think it was that controversial to be honest. Just looking for some reassurance that it isn't awful I suppose.

I love it. It reminds me of (Andrew) Freddie Flintoff, one of my favourite cricketers.
It's very rude to tell someone you don't like their choice of name ... and I've never found it to be controversial any way. There are quite a few round my way
Go for it! It's brill.

It's becoming increasingly popular and is quite a posh name I think (based on people I know who have chosen it, Freddie Windsor etc). As you've made your mind up, it might be better to wait until the birth until you announce it as hopefully people won't be quite so rude then.
