TR hated being called "Teddy" but as a child his family called him "Teedie". Is there a difference in pronunciation between the two? P.S You are the single coolest and most well informed person I've come across on the internet.

Thank you.  I definitely appreciate that, although you might want to meet some more people on the internet because I’m a rapidly-aging man who lives with books and listens to almost nothing outside of 90’s hip-hop.

As for your question, yes “Teddy” and “Teedie” are pronounced differently.  They are pronounced like you would think from their spellings.
