I’m curious to know everyone’s impression of the name [name]Edward[/name]. We are most likely going to name one of our twin boys [name]Edward[/name] (the other will be [name]Oliver[/name]), and while I had intended to call him by his middle ([name]Drew[/name] - nn from [name]Andrew[/name]), I must admit that just using the full name [name]Edward[/name] is starting to grow on me! I do love that it is a core classic name - I guess I’ve just associated it with older men. [name]Haven[/name]'t yet met a toddler [name]Edward[/name]…
My 11 year-old son absolutely adores the name and insists it will be considered “cool”, and he says his reasons for liking it have nothing to do w/ Twilight. His name is [name]James[/name] and he prefers classic names as well.
(We don’t particularly like any of the nn’s for [name]Edward[/name], although [name]Teddy[/name] could be cute for a little guy, but not so much as he ages. I tend not to like “y” endings for boys. I would prefer the full name to be used.)
