I really like it. And personally I love the opportunity for the nickname 'Diddy' - like P. Diddy! That would be a cool nickname to uphold.

Jedidiah sounds too foreign and old fashioned.

It means "God's friend". "Beloved of YAHWEH"? Seriously?!? I am a Hebrew speaker and it doesn't mean that!

Sounds like the name of a racist, homophobic, Bible-thumping redneck from the American South. It doesn't help that those disturbing Duggars used it on one of their rugrats.

This is a wonderful name that will age beautifully! Jed is a cool nickname, the meaning is great and it's not a commonly used Biblical name. Love it!

I hate this name. It sounds too ultra-religious. It makes me think of fundamentalist Christians who believe in the whole Bible literally.

I hate this über-biblical name. I hate the short form Jed as well. The name sounds like an old man's name. I loathe all names ending in -iah, except maybe Mariah, as they sound so annoyingly religious.

I have a nephew named Jedidiah who is 27. I call him Jeddo, but that is just an term of endearment from a loving aunt. Jedidiah was a name of endearment given to the infant King Solomon by the prophet Nathan, and my nephew's middle name happens to be Nathan.

This is a great name for a boy. The nickname Jed is cool. I also like the meaning of this name.

This is merely my own opinion -- Jedidiah (or Jed) gives me the distinct impression of a gentle country-bumpkin (and, somehow, he is always an older person in my mind). No offense intended; it is only an impression -- a very strong impression that I can't seem to shake.

'Friend of god' would be a more accurate translation.
