Congrats to them! However, I’ll never understand the “nicknames as first names” thing. Why not name him Thomas and then call him Tommy????

Mary on

Don’t know who she is, but congrats, nice normal name.

Jenny- It could very well be that they DID name him Thomas and just opted to use the name they plan to call him in the announcement. Anyway, congrats to them!

If they named him Thomas and called him Tommy, people would complain about that. Either way…I will never understand why complain about the choices people make for THEIR children!

How about this jenny – Why name him Thomas if they are always going to call him Tommy? What is wrong with people? A normal name is a reason to complain now?

Abbie- Well said. Also, he can always go by Tom when he’s older if he feels that Tommy is too little boyish.

Honestly. I hope that name is a joke. Just call him Thomas, already. Do you want him to grow up like Tommy Lee?!

traxie- I wasn’t aware that a name determined how someone grew up!

Traxie, so if his name is Tommy, he will be just like Tommy Lee? So, let me get this straight….all Miley’s will be just like Miley Cyrus. What about the Justin’s? Will they be like Justin Bieber or Timberlake?

Hmmm, sorry. My attempt at humour was a bit lame. In fact when I looked at your comments I thought god, I just made a total Dad Joke!
