I personally wouldn't use any of them, but my favorite out of those listed is Edward. Although with all the Twilight hype it may always be associate with it.

I voted other. None of those are my style, however, I do like Edison.

Now, I like Ed- names - Edward, Edmund, and Edison - but I do not care for the nn Eddie

I like the literary work/characters behind the name of Edmund. For one, he's the hero in The Count of Monte Cristo (which I LOVE). There are a few famous philosophers and poets with the name.

And, I like the history associated with Edward. There were several kings and princes named Edward and it's an "American royalty" name. One of the Kennedys has the name.

I just like Edison as I like quite a few -son names.

I did vote for Edward although it's tied with Edmund in my mind.

I voted for "other" because I like Edison the best as a formal name for Eddie. Edward is a close second though, it's handsome.

I voted for Edward. I do think Desmond could work in an off kind of way. I do love Desmond.

Twilight is a flash in the pan.

Edward is a timeless, beautiful name- been around forever.

It's my choice.

I voted Edmund, but its tied with Edward for me. Both are handsome names. I cant say I would ever use the nickname Eddie for them, though.

I picked Edmund because I like it slightly more then Edward but if I named my son that I would never call them Ed, Eddie, or any of those nn's. I would just use their full name.
