More than a tad meager.
Please add to or correct the information provided by other members of the Nameberry community.
This name is so adorable. The shortness doesn't bother me at all, and I don't love any of the full names it can be a nickname for. Since there's just been a berrybaby named Eliza Kit, Tad could at least go comfortably in a middle spot.
Love these one syllable boy's names: Tad, Joss, Red, & Tex.
This is one of my favorite boy names, though I'm biased since it's the name of my dad and cousin, both good namesakes.
With a playground of Jack's and Sam's and Max's, I can absolutely see Tad there, too.
I actually like the brevity of this name. Yes, it's short, but that strong final -d makes it feel complete.
As a diminutive for Thaddeus, I much prefer Tad over Thad. Thad sounds a bit "frat boy" to me.
