Keep changing my mind - I have a Tom and think Ned goes well...but not 100% sure.
Like shorter names too!

Not as a full name. As a nn I think it is cute.
I know a Nicholas that gets called Ned.

I love, love, love this name....on it's own, not as a nickname...I hate the name Edward!

Only as a nickname. You could always have Edmund, Edgar or others if you don't like Edward.

I love it - as the name not nickname!!!
I so want this for our boy, but due to family reasons I doubt we'll get to use it. Even trying to have it for middlename!!
Ned is also short for Edmund as PP has said but I think Edmund, Edward or Edgar are terrible - sound like 90yr old men!!

I agree with the PP. It's great as a nickname for Edward or any of the other Ed type names previously suggested
ooOOoo just remembered there is a great book called 'Tom's Tree' about a boy called Tom and his big brother Ned! It's a great book, a real favourite in this house but thankfully just before I knew it off by heart, it went back to the library

I think the Simpsons have ruined that name for anyone. I don't like it all that pops to mind is ned flanders.

Hmm... I'm not really a fan of Ned....
but hey... It's your choice!!

I LOVE the name Ned. I know a little boy whose name is Ned, and no it isn't shortened from Edward, he is just Ned, and he is the coolest little dude, the name is awesome. It goes well with his brothers Darcy and Riley.
