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.

Is a masculine given name. It comes from the Greek name Θεόδωρος (Theodōros) meaning "god-given" (from the Greek words θεός, (theos) "god" and δώρον (dōron) "gift").[1] The name was borne by several prehistoric figures, such as Theodorus of Samos and Theodorus the Atheist, but gained popularity due to the rise of Christianity (its meaning having been adapted to "God-given".)

Ted Fujita (born Tetsuya Fujita) was a prominent Japanese-American severe storms researcher. His research at the University of Chicago on severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, and typhoons revolutionized the knowledge of each. He is recognized as the discoverer of downbursts and microbursts and also developed the Fujita scale, which differentiates tornado intensity and links tornado damage with wind speed.

Fujita's best-known contributions were in tornado research; he was often called "Mr. Tornado" by his associates and by the media. In addition to developing the Fujita scale, Fujita was a pioneer in the development of tornado overflight and damage survey techniques, which he used to study and map the paths of the two tornadoes that hit Lubbock, Texas on May 11, 1970. He established the value of photometric analysis of tornado pictures and films to establish wind speeds at various heights at the surface of tornado vortices. Fujita was also the first to widely study the meteorological phenomenon of the downburst, which can pose serious danger to aircraft. As a result of his work, pilot training worldwide routinely uses techniques he pioneered to provide instruction to students.
