    Thoughts on Sunny?

    Hi All,

    I'd just LOVE to gauge others thoughts on the name 'Sunny' (with this spelling, not Sonny) for a boy. (But please don't be too scathing though if you don't like it!)

    My husband and I have very different points of view on names, with myself being very traditional (e.g. My favourites are Edward or Harrison) and his very 'modern' (e.g. He loves Bowie or Marlow). One name that we both have an appeal to is Sunny. I think this is very cute for a young boy and we know two other grown up men who have the name Sunny (and one more with Sonny) and this suits them to a tee, so as a grown up I think it is quite gorgeous too.

    To us it is not too obscure as we know other (grown ups) with this name - and the idea of our little ray of sunshine is very fitting....but I'm interested to know how others might perceive it.

    My husband loves it, I really think it is lovely too - but my only concern is if our son were to grow up and be in a very professional field, will the name still be lovely or will it seem silly? My husbands argument against that is that breadth of names now - this generation names like this, and different names will be so common place. And going through the list of names or our friends recent arrivals (and looking at the top 100 names recently posted on nameberry!) I can see he has a point.

    Anyway - please share your thoughts! TIA
