I LOVE the name. It's my second FAV name I just LOVE IT SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH.
No one said this but, Fred the MY LEG! Guy from Spongebob.
I used to like Fred, but started to forget about it once the film "Big Hero 6" came out. However, it's still okay as a nickname for Frederick.
In my opinion this name can be really cute and attractive on a certain person, but on other people it just doesn't work.
It makes me think of frogs for a reason I’m not sure about.
Well, Freddie is Eddie's pet frog on Little People.

Also...Fred isn't one of my favorites. It's too nicknamey and bland. Fred reminds me too much of Mister Roger's neighborhood, Scooby Doo, and the Flintsones. Those aren't very bad associations, but still. Frederick is nice, though. Fred would be okay as a nickname for Frederick.
It's kinda cute!
I can only think of Fred from the Flinstones.
Freaky Fred is a character from the cartoon, "Courage the Cowardly Dog". Although not a recurring character, Fred is well-known due to his creepy appearance. :)
I don't particularly like the name Fred. I can't imagine a small child with this name, and it doesn't have good associations for me because the only Freds I have met have been rude, grumpy old men.

Fred and Frederick has far more stigma than it deserves.
Fred certainly is a name in itself and is not necessarily a nickname.
It's nickname, not a name.
The name Fred was given to 104 baby boys born in the US in 2012.
This name strikes me instantly as masculine with a good athletic and academic mix. It is traditional and I think of an All-American type man or boy, a college baseball or football player.
If someone asked me the first person I think of when I hear the name Fred, I would automatically say Fred Jones from Scooby Doo - which isn't necessarily a bad thing! In the tv show, Fred was always good looking and a leader. On the other hand, another Fred kids will think of is Fred Figglehorn, the Youtube character, who is insane.
Can also be a short form of Alfred or Alfredo.

I love this name, mostly because it was Mr. Rogers' first name. Is there any better namesake for a child?
It's an okay name, but I much prefer Freddie as a pet form of Frederick.

It's old fashioned and kind of plain, but for some reason, I like it.
This name could also be short for Alfred.

I hate this name. It sounds terrible and old. I'm not one for the classics, though.

Not that famous, but Fred and his twin brother George are the major pranksters of the Weasley family in J.K. Rowling's famous series "Harry Potter." They adore playing jokes and breaking rules, and of course they were born on (when else?!) April Fool's Day.
