I live in the UK ([name]Wales[/name]) and love the name [name]Edith[/name], which has been growing in popularity over the last few years here. I [name]DO[/name] remember [name]Edith[/name] Bunker, but I would not have thought of her if you had not mentioned it! There is really cool British female dj called [name]Edith[/name] [name]Bowman[/name], (who is very pretty as well as having a fab Scottish accent), and I think the name has a lot of style.
I [name]DO[/name] predict that it will be overrused in [name]Britain[/name] in the next five years or so, though. Maybe not in the States, however. [name]Edie[/name] is a nice nickname too.
