  • "I was born in 1962 and my three sisters thought of this name for me. People often tell me they like my name and that it is quite uncommon to meet people named Edmund today. I often have to spell out my name, as people immediately assume it is spelled with an "o" instead of a "u"." Jun. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My grandfather's name was Edmund, I named Emily (takes the E and M from Edmund) after him because my mom didn't want my name to be Edna. I've never met a Edmund in my life, not even my grandfather. I think it's a wonderful name." Dec. 27, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Very seldom, but here is an interesting thought. Edmund means "protector" "Keeper of the keys." I have always looked after and protected people who were deemed as "different" amomg our peers. Later, I was in a position where I was and assist train special ed students. Often times I felt that they were giving me a far greater gift, than I was afording them. Also, I worked in schools for thirty years as a Head Custodian. The kepper of the keys and protector of the school and those who came to teach, learn and enjoy a clean and sanitory enviroment. I most especially enjoy my roll as Father." Jan. 26, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "The name is apparently much less common now than Edward, judging by people's general willingness to assume Ed or Eddie is short for Edward. Other than my father and grandfather, I have never met another Edmund, except for an Eamonn, which is Irish for Edmund." Dec. 28, 2005: Report as inappropriate
