  • "I was Tommy as a kid and I'm Tom as an adult. I couldn't be happier with my name. It's as solid as they come. One note on Tommy: it's fine for a kid, and it's nice as an occasional adult nickname among family and friends. But it's a hard name to pull off full-time as an adult (Tom is much better). If you want to call your boy Tommy, I'd suggest also calling him Tom as he gets older. Better to to encourage him to naturally go by both than make him wrestle with changing it himself."
