Ted is generally used as a nickname for Theodore or Edward, but could be a first name on its own. Granted, it’s a bit ho-hum compared to its more substantial sounding orignators and way outdated—Ted hasn’t been on the popularity charts in a looooong time. It’s also the name of the lead character in TV’s long-running How I Met Your Mother.
