I really like Edison, it was one of the names of the trapped Miners in Chile. Will it sound stupid in a few years time, will he just get Eddie, does it sound like a pets name, I wondered what people though?

I like Edison, but you're right, Ed/Eddie is a likely nickname.

Edison is popular in S America and Central America too, as is Wilson.

It will be shortened to Ed or Eddie, you're right about this.

How about Thomas Alva?

Harrison doesn't get shortened to Harry so I don't think that Edison will neccessarily get shortened to Eddie. I like it.

Will get called Ed or Eddie, can't see what is wrong with that.

Well it screams lightbulb. No one is going to think of the miner TBH, it's all about the inventor with this name. I don't think it's going to date, and the nicknames aren't bad, so if you like it I don't think it's a bad choice.
