wdyt of Tyson

with the nn Ty?  He would be called Ty most of the time.  We love the nn and my husband loves Tyson.  We have a Taylor in the family (distant) so we think that Tyler is a little too close.  I know that people associate it with Mike Tyson and chicken, but is it really that bad?

  • I automatically think of chicken.

  • I know a great kid (well, young man) whose name is Tyson and who goes by Ty.  I don't think I've ever heard anyone refer to him by his full first name.  It's not a name I would use, but I don't dislike it.

  • My first thought was chicken, too. Sorry.

    ETA...I failed to read the whole post first.

  • I LOVE it! It is on our list if we ever get pg with a boy!
  • My DH and I really like the name Tyson.  I think Ty is cute too.  Love Tyler a well.  If it's a distant family member who is named Taylor, that wouldn't stop me from using Tyler.
  • I think of the chicken and the boxer. I don't hate the name by any means, but it's NMS. I prefer Tyler, personally, and I wouldn't let a distant relative sway me from that.

    The question is, though, which do YOU prefer? If you like Tyson better anyway, go with that!

  • Yes, I thought of chicken, but it's not a bad name at all. I like it ok. I like Tyler more.

    If you like Ty so much then maybe go with Tyler. I have a friend that named her son Tyler and nick named him Ty.

  • I grew up knowing someone w/ that name.  He goes by both Ty and Tyson.  But Tyson more commonly.

  • In order, I think of Tyson Chicken Nuggets and Mike Tyson. NMS at all.

  • He bit off someone's ear you know (Mike Tyson) Oh, and chicken.
  • I have to be honest and say that I first think of chicken.  But then again I am pregnant, hehe.  Then I think of Tyson Beckford, who is outstandingly attractive!

    I think that once people meet your little boy if you name him Tyson, they will not think of chicken anymore (or any other association).  I say go for it.

  • I do like Tyson, but I don't like Ty. I have a nephew named Tyler and he tries hard to not let people call him Ty....he used to get Ty-Ty and it's so silly.
