Hedy Lamarr was a total fox.

I quite like it but I do NOT like Hedwig. Hedwig should be illegal.

squoosh Fri 03-May-13 14:27:45

Hedda is much better than Hedwig and has a bit of literary clout too. Admittedly Hedda Gabler doesn't have the ummm, jolliest, ending in the world.

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Fri 03-May-13 14:29:47

Yes I like Hedda too.

Wasn't Hedy the name of the more than slightly disturbed flat mate in Single White Female?

Purplebananas Fri 03-May-13 14:56:38

Just no.

I had no idea she was a mathematician aswell as a film star. That's a bit sad, isn't it?

It's a great name.

I know a Hedi but I think it's short for Hediye or Hedieh.
