  • "There has been at least one girl named Edison since 1880 - our daughter, Edison Danielle. She is named after a great-grandfather Edward and a grandfather Daniel." Oct. 17, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "Our second son is named Eddison. I misspelled it on the birth certificate, so he is stuck with an even more individual name. It is interesting how popluar it has been in the past, and now again in 2006. He was born in 1996, so no one was naming their kids that at the time." May. 31, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my son's name and I get a lot of compliments on it." Dec. 6, 2007: Report as inappropriate

      1 Neutral Comment

  • "Could sometimes be a girl's name, in part as an alternative to Addison or Madison (themselves once boys' names). The American inventor Thomas Alva Edison bore this name as a surname, which is either a patronymic from Edward or a metronymic from Edith." May. 28, 2008: Report as inappropriate
