    Impressions of Ned (nickname)

    Hello All,
    We are trying to settle on a boy name and are wondering your impressions of the name Ned as a nickname. We do not personally know any Neds but think of few connections through TV and books. But we want to know what it makes others think of....thank you!

    I love Ned as a nn for Edward .

    I think this nn can be wear well in all the stages ,from a boy to a young mam to an elderly .
    I loved her not for the way she danced with my angels but for the way the sound of her name could silence my demons.~ Christopher Poindexter.

    Uh, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide was on TV when I was a kid. That's the only thing I can think of, but it's pretty irrelevant now.

    I don't know. Edward is one of my favorite names, so naturally I've thought about nicknames. Ned just doesn't stick with me for some reason. I prefer Ed or Eddie.

    I like it as a nn for Edward, too. There are good and not-so-good pop-culture associations. I think of Ned the pie-maker from Pushing Daisies (yay!), but my brother would probably think of Ned Flanders from the Simpsons. I don't think it matters, personally. e

    I love Ned! I think it would work as a given name as well.
