  • "My name is Edward, but i think i shall force my friends to call me this way. I'd say it suits me to a T !" Jun. 26, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my sons, his father's and my grandson's name. We live in California. We spell it Eddie. I never gave much thought to the spelling. I know a lot of men name eddie who spell it with an "ie". I also know one female named Eddy. Spelled with a "y". So I don't think it really matters whether you use an "ie" or a "y", male or female, it all depends on how it looks to YOU, the person naming your child." Jun. 15, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Edward. Born in 1948. About the peak popularity for the name. Short name, Eddie. Eddy with a Y is a whirl pool. Or short for a girl named Edwina. Get the spelling right." Aug. 22, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "that is how we named our son, we live in Holland and it is indeed spelled wrongly." Dec. 10, 2010: Report as inappropriate
