I like it.
I generally prefer a longer formal name with a NN, but I do think this is one of the few names that can stand alone as a first name.
FWIW, my SF's name is Ted-- just Ted. It's not short for Edward or Theodore and I have to say I have never thought twice about it until I really started thinking about names.

This reminds me of a story my friend told me. She was walking around Arlington Cemetery looking at the graves. Some guy came along and said "Who is Edward Kennedy? And where is Ted Kennedy??"
OP - I'm much more of a formal name with nickname person. I don't even like Jack as a stand alone name. I vote for Theodore with the nickname Theo.

I don't care for it as a nn or a stand-alone.
Theodore is fine, but my favorite nn is Teddy. Theo just sounds "thug-ish" to me or something.
