Nice or not nice?

I like both Ed and Eddie as nicknames.

Edgar Otto sounds like there's 'rot' in there somewhere. Both fine but not together

Like them both, but like Layl77 I hear another word in there somewhere -- garotte.

I know an Edgar who has always been Eddie.

I love it, that's one of the nicest name combinations I've seen on here.

Love Edgar, I recently met one and instantly really liked the name. I really like Otto too but I'm afraid for me I hear garrotte too when they're said together

I know a 2yo Edgar and he's a cutie

It sounds like a late-19th-century German. I think Otto, although I don't like it personally, has that old-man-chic vibe, but Edgar definitely doesn't. Has good nickname potential, though (Ed or Eddie).How about Edward?

Love Edgar but I don't think it goes well with Otto

Love Edgar. Unfortunately I have reasons for hating the nn Ed so was never going to work for us. Had to have a a major battle with DH over it though as he was very very very very keen on Edgar. It is a super cool name and not old mannish at all. Think Egg from This Life. Swoon...

It sounds like Ed Grotto...

It's a surname in Scotland. I like it as a first name and agree its certainly less boring than Edward. I quite like otto too.
