I think Theodore is wonderful. I don't understand why it gets much flack from commoners (what I pretentiously refer to people who don't use Nameberry as). If you love the name, stick with it. If your family dislikes it so much, they can just call him Theo or Teddy, but don't pass on using a name you love just because your family dislikes it. xxnot expecting, just collecting.

I think it is a great name. I also wonder if the 3-year-old slipped up, and Grandma was trying to get her two cents in. If so, shame on Grandma for sticking her nose where it doesn't belong. (Disclosure: Theo was the boy name that I picked when I had my child. I was a little sad not to get to use it... not that I don't love having a girl! But I love that name.)Mom to the delightful Be@trix He1en Luci11e (2011)

I think it's a lovely, classic sounding name. It sucks your family are being unpleasant, but at the end of the day this is your baby and his name is your choice. If you and your husband like it, that's all that matters.Rowena Louise
