Just curious: thoughts on Edwina?


Ugly? Classic? Trendy "E" name? Granny-chic?
 
Know anyone with this name? 
 
 
 
I know of two women [aged 30-40] with this name. One goes by Eddie, the other goes by Wynna.

  • I don't think granny chic so much as granny. Give that one a few more years to see if it's ready for a comeback...

    I also think of the Mo Willems book "Edwina the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct."

  • I think it's awful.

    And I think it tells you something that neither Edwina you know actually USES it.

  • Not a fan at all. This just isn't one of those names that can make a comeback, IMO.
  • Old lady name for sure. 
  • I know one Edwina, and she is probably in her late 20s or early 30s. But for me, it is just one of those names, like Bertha or Norma, that is not ready for a comeback.

  • Ugh.

  • My first thought is Absolutely Fabulous.  The show that is. 

    I'm not a huge fan of Eddie for a girl, but I could probably get on board with it.

  • Sorry it's really bad. My friends DH is an Edwin. He is the 4th gen. We joke that if they have a DD they will name her Edwina. Not good.

  • Not a fan of it.  Read a book with a character by that name and I always thought it was made up (named for the father, Edwin).
