Opinions? It reminds me of magic, etc. (Narnia) which I love!

The only other 'Ed' name, that I like, is Edward. Is that better? smile

Other 'magic' names, to me, are names like Phoenix, Griffin, Robin, etc.

Any other suggestions?

Love it. It's unusual without being too 'out there'. If I had another DS it would be on my list smile

Blackadder.

Love the name and the Narnia reference

I thought of Narnia too.

How about Eddison?

Was my top boys name. After Edmund in Mansfield park.smile ignore the Blackwater comments. Most will not make the connection.

I thought blackadder as well, but I am of a certain age.

Edmund in King Lear is the baddie , as is the one in Narnia, but it's a great name.

I thought Narnia as well. Edmund is a weak character in Narnia which puts me off the name. But if you like it, go for it.

I think Edmund is really nice. I also really like Edgar and Edison but not so keen on Edward

💙 Edmund

King Lear for me too; it's a no.

HapShawl Thu 27-Oct-16 07:07:43

You're wrong about Narnia - Edmund has the best character development through the whole series.

None of the Edmunds I know is bothered by the Blackadder thing

But I like Anglo-Saxon names anyway

Footle Thu 27-Oct-16 08:01:29

HapShawl, I totally agree about Edmund's development , far more interesting and thought-provoking than any other in the books, but children do see him as the baddie.

Its a lovely name. I doubt that many playground taunts will arise from fellow pupils knowledge of King Lear, or Blackadder tbh. The Edmund in Narnia came good.

Edward is ok too.

I like it but I prefer Edwin or Edison.

DoYouRememberJustinBobby Thu 27-Oct-16 20:30:17

I love it, really love it.

ShesGotAMapOfTheWorld Thu 27-Oct-16 20:33:10

I think it's lovely.
