Full name for Teddy?

Hey everyone!
What full name would you use to get the nickname [name_u]Teddy[/name_u]?
Also, I don’t like [name_u]Theo[/name_u] as a nickname and I knew a really nasty one so that puts me off [name_m]Theodore[/name_m].
Thank you!


[name_m]Edmund[/name_m] or [name_u]Thaddeus[/name_u] for me!


I like both suggestions of [name_m]Edmund[/name_m] and [name_u]Thaddeus[/name_u] from above. Otherwise I’d suggest [name_m]Edwin[/name_m], [name_u]Edward[/name_u], or [name_m]Edgar[/name_m]! [name_u]Or[/name_u] maybe [name_m]Tadeo[/name_m]?

I love [name_m]Ed[/name_m]- names so [name_u]Edward[/name_u], [name_m]Edmund[/name_m], [name_m]Edwin[/name_m], etc. but also any name meaning bear! So [name_u]Arthur[/name_u] would be my pick. (Auberon, and [name_m]Bernard[/name_m] are other options.)

Also enjoy the previously mentioned [name_u]Thaddeus[/name_u] <3

edmund -

kennedy for a nice stretchy one (kennedy → ned → neddy → teddy)


I’d consider:


[name_u]Teddy[/name_u] is usually the nn for [name_m]Ed[/name_m] names - [name_m]Edmund[/name_m], [name_u]Edward[/name_u], [name_m]Edwin[/name_m] etc. I would assume that a boy nicknamed [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] had one of these names.

Actually met an 18yo [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] yesterday! I think his name is just [name_m]Ted[/name_m]. But I’d prefer a longer name. I like [name_m]Edmund[/name_m] and [name_u]Edward[/name_u].

I think you already got some good suggestions so I’ll try to add some


And some stretches (they have a T in the middle and end in -ed):

The classic source for me would be [name_u]Edward[/name_u], as that’s what I’d automatically assume a boy named [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] was called.

Some more ideas:


I also really like previous suggestions of [name_m]Edric[/name_m] & [name_m]Tudor[/name_m]!

Not new but I would choose [name_m]Edmund[/name_m] - I also like [name_u]Edward[/name_u] and [name_m]Edwin[/name_m] (though [name_m]Edwin[/name_m] maybe a tad too historical sounding for me). I like [name_m]Orson[/name_m] for it too though in practice, I’d probably just use [name_u]Sonny[/name_u] for that one.

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] seems best but [name_u]Edward[/name_u] is pretty good

Not madly off piste but I’d choose [name_u]Edward[/name_u], [name_m]Edmund[/name_m], or [name_m]Edgar[/name_m]!
