Oh my goodness, that's awesome! If we have a son we want to call him Jedidiah. I love Jed and we'll probably still use that but Jedi is amazing! We might have to use both :-)

This is my brothers name. We have called him Jed all his life. His nieces and nephews all call him Jeddy.

There is a woman on a show on fox news with this name, and I think that is pretty cool.

We have an 8 year old Jedidiah. No one has ever really called him Jed. When we do use a nickname, we use "Jedi."
