    I love it. It was on my short list of boy names.

    I have professed my love for Frederick over and over again. But unfortunately, the nicknames Fred and Freddie are what eventually nixed it for me. But if you like these nicknames, I say go for it! Frederick is a handsome, underused classic.

    I would only like it if the nn Freddie was used... just not a fan of the sound of the full name.

    I have a cat named Frederick...he was originally just Fred but after I named him, I realized how much I love Frederick, so now I call him Frederick James just because I love the way it sounds. Now I'm sad that I've "wasted" the name on a cat when I could have used it on an actual child one day, haha.
    I think it's a great name. It sounds very masculine and regal to me. Then again, I love regal, "prince-like" names for boys. Edward, James, Henry, Phillip, William...

    I voted "love it" but I'm not sure that's even quite right, lol. I love the nn Freddie, I think it's adorable, but I hate Fred (had an awful acquaintance with the name), and Frederick continues to remind me of him even though he always went by Fred, never Frederick. I guess I should have voted "nms but I'd love to see someone else use it". I wish there was a Freddie name I loved, because I'd love to at least consider it, but that definitely wouldn't happen with Frederick for me. :/ I do really like it for you, though--I think it goes with a lot of your favorites.
