I get the Sonny & Cher thing a lot, and It annoys me every time - Good thing about it, kids at school have no idea who Sonny and Cher is! I couldn't imagine his name being anything else -- He's just Sonny, not, Brandon A. or Christopher S. --" Sep. 29, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "A name like Sonny, as in Sonny and Cher, not to mention Japanese martial artist and action star Sonny Chiba (founder of the Japan Action Club now called the Japan Action Enterprise), may have some unfortunate associations. As a word written with a small 's', it is often a disrespectful form of address for a boy or young man as used by an older person (often in the form 'sonny boy' or 'sonny Jim')." Jul. 26, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My cousin's name is Sonny, and she's a girl. I always thought it sounded weird for a boy to be named that." Sep. 9, 2006: Report as inappropriate
