"My son is called Ned, he was born in 2001. He was named after my father, Edward. My father grew up in Ireland and was called Ned up unitl he came to England when someone mistook his name for Ted. He has been Ted every since. We all love the name Ned, it's a bit different without being odd. If my son wishes, when he becomes Prime Minister or something worthwhile, he can be called Edward!!"
