I’m just wondering what you think of the name [name]Edison[/name]? I’ve liked this name for quite a while now but am not sure if it is usable considering how popular [name]Addison[/name] is.

For a girl or a boy? I think it is a great choice for a boy, though you are right about it being possibly confused with [name]Addison[/name]…the nn [name]Eddie[/name]/[name]Teddy[/name] could help. [name]Thomas[/name] [name]Edison[/name] is definitely a worthy namesake!
Similiar names: [name]Edmund[/name], [name]Elliot[/name], [name]Ezra[/name], [name]Sebastian[/name], [name]Eamon[/name], [name]Hudson[/name] (popular), [name]Everett[/name], [name]Oliver[/name], [name]Ellison[/name] (I consider this a kind of in-between name–a bit feminine for a boy, quite masculine for a girl)

It is definitely too masculine for a girl, however. If you are looking for a similiar girl’s name, you might like [name]Gwendolyn[/name], [name]Adeline[/name]/[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Eloise[/name]/[name]Elodie[/name], [name]Elise[/name], [name]Evangeline[/name], [name]Frances[/name], [name]Celia[/name]/[name]Cecily[/name], [name]Esther[/name], [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Emmeline[/name], [name]Evelyn[/name] (kind of popular), or [name]Jessamine[/name].

Good luck! :slight_smile:

For a boy!! Definitely not for a girl. I wouldn’t want my daughter to end up being called [name]Ed[/name] or [name]Eddie[/name].

yep i dont mind it! I have a friend called Edis.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Edison[/name] - you go for it! x
