I think Slade is a fantastic name. It's strong and masculine and unique without being weird. It's what I named my son and I get nice comments on his name all the time.

Personal experiences with the name Slade: | Edit

Slade is such a cool name. My husband chose the name and people are always telling Slade what a awesome name he has.

I chose this name when I was still pregnant and when he was born I just knew it was his name. Had been all along. We had Brody, Ryun and a few others picked but Slade stood out.

My sons name is Slade and we get compliments on it all the time.

Nicknames for Slade: | Edit

My son's cousin made up the nickname Slade-O-Potato and it has stuck ever since. I personally call him Sladie and he hates it....."It's not cool mom. Call me Slade-O."

Both nicknames for Slade are different. He gets called 'Slay' now and then but mostly 'Sladey' since he is still a baby.

We call our little guy "Slade-o Potato"

That is so funny! We named our son Slade after his great granddad's middle name and we also call him "Slade-O-Potato" :) At first we called him "Slade-O" because his middle name is Orion so all his hospital stuff read Slade O Wolfe, and that quickly became "Slade-O-Potato".
