I think Ted is a very cool name depending on who it's used on.

This name is borne by Keanu Reeves' character Ted "Theodore" Logan in 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' and the sequel, 'Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.'

Unfortunately, I associate this name with Ted Bundy, a notorious serial killer.

It's impossible to hear this name without thinking of Father Ted!

Not only is Ted the name of Nymphadora Tonks' father in the Harry Potter series, but *SPOILERS AHEAD* it is also the name of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora's son in Deathly Hallows, named after his newly late grandfather.

I hate this name with a flaming passion. I can't stand Theodore either, but that old-fashioned and pompous-sounding name is always shortened to this annoying little name that sounds quite youthful and still like the name of an old guy, paradoxically. This name isn't exactly associated with respectable people either. There's the serial killer creep Ted Bundy, but I don't actually mind THAT as much as I do mind the fact that this is the name of the utterly obnoxious, misogynous, racist idiot Ted Nugent. I say this name should just be buried already. The full form Theodore sounds too officious and pompous, whereas Ted doesn't sound very mature.

There is a movie called "Ted", directed by Seth MacFarlane. The character Ted is a wisecracking, pot smoking teddy bear who lives with his best friend john (Mark Wahlberg).

The name Ted was given to 65 baby boys born in the US in 2012. Also, Edward "Ted" Dwane is a member of the band Mumford and Sons.

Ted Bundy was a serial killer, Ted Kaczynski was the Unabomber, Ted Kennedy left a woman to drown at Chappaquiddick... between those three associations, this name is pretty much ruined for me.
