"My name is Edith and I?m 14 years old. People call me Edie and I haven?t been called Edith since I was a baby. I still like my name but it is a little unusual. My parents wanted to call me Edie but put Edith on my birth certificate as they thought Edie was a nickname. Haters will hate but every Edith I?ve met is pengggg." Feb. 24, 2019:

""My name is Edith and I'm 17 years old. I LOVE my name. I don't think it's a name for old women at all. It was just common at one point back then, but know not so much. I think it's a very pretty name. I get compliments at all. Plus it's not very common. My parents couldn't have chosen a better name for me. "" Aug. 9, 2011:

"My name is Edith. I was born in 81 so it's not common at all. I LOVE my name but only if it's pronounced correclty. It's pronounced Editte (as in Edith Piaf... you know, how the French pronounce it). I get compliments on it all the time and it is a beautiful name when pronounced correctly. I would name my daughter Editte except it would be very weird." Apr. 29, 2008:
"My mom's name was Edith and she and my dad named our baby sister Edith as well. Our baby sister tends to use her nickname 'Eddi" all the time because she thinks the original name sounds like it belongs to 'older woman.' I think it was a wonderful gift bestowed unto her from our mother and while the world calls her 'Eddi'...I only use Edith." Jun. 18, 2007:

"This is most certainly a name for old people. But if you are not old and your name is Edith, fear not. There is a way to change your name for a reason, and that reason is generally parents with no better judgement." Jun. 7, 2021:

"Despite Edith Bowman's popularity on Radio 1 in Britain at the present time (and no offense to Ms Bowman), but it's impossible to escape the memories of those other Ediths who made enormous impact many years ago but unfortunately made this name sound somewhat old for a modern child, and even though Dame Edith Evans was a great British actress until she died in 1976 aged 88. As along as Allo Allo the UK television sitcom is repeated in Britain (and All In The Family in the U.S.), it seems likely the name will retain some old ladyish associations for years to come. J.R.R. Tolkien's wife, of course, was an Edith, and Frau Otto Frank, mother of Fraeulein Anne Frank, was an Edith too. It seems that there are one too many famous Ediths - in England and in America too (think Edith Wharton, author of 'The Age Of Innocence') - were born between 1860 and 1920, and there was also an infamous Edith - English murderess Edith Thompson, who was hanged in 1923 for her part in her husband's killing, also by her younger lover." Jun. 3, 2008:
"In Britain this has both positive and negative associations - the positive side of the name is Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman (born 1975), and I find her really funny, and the negative side is the fictional Edith Artois in the overrated UK sitcom Allo Allo (aired 1982-1992), set in wartime France, where Mme Artois' husband Rene (pronounced 'rennay') is the owner of the cafe, featuring Mlle Yvette Cartier-Blanche, waitress of the cafe, and the English Officer Crabtree, a regular in the cafe who says "Good Moaning" instead of "Good Morning"." May. 3, 2008:
"Was the sixth most popular name for girls born in the United States in the 1870s, after which it was adopted more modestly in the 1900s-1920s, before fading generally from the 1930s. To many Americans today this name still conjures up Mrs Bunker in All In The Family. Some British parents are beginning to pick up this name again, but everyone else in Britain still thinks this is more Edith Artois in Allo Allo or Edith Piaf (or even Dame Edith Evans) than Edith Bowman, born in 1975. Personally, I wouldn't name my daughter Edith as I still think it's mainly for a much older person than myself." Feb. 5, 2008:
"Also borne by Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt, wife of one past U.S. president Theodore Roosevelt, and by Edith Bolling Gant Wilson, wife of another one-time U.S. president Woodrow Wilson - not to mention Archie Bunker's wife Edith in the U.S. sitcom All In The Family (America's answer to the British sitcom Till Death Us Do Part)." Jan. 21, 2008:
"Edith Bowman rules...but then again Edith Wharton and Edith Piaf still rule from beyond the grave. We cannot also forget Mme Artois in the British sitcom Allo Allo, whose first name is Edith." Jan. 17, 2008:
"Not all Ediths are older women. In fact, the British radio DJ Edith Bowman is only 32, and she presents her own show on Radio 1 every weekday. However, it is impossible to get away from such dowdy television characters as Edith Bunker in the American sitcom 'All In The Family' and Frenchwoman Edith Artois in the British sitcom 'Allo Allo'." Jul. 21, 2007:
"While people today associate this name with the Scottish-born radio and television personality Edith Bowman who presents her own radio show every weekday on Radio 1, in the past it was often associated with the American writer Edith Wharton, who in 1920 wrote 'The Age Of Innocence'. Edith Wharton is still sometimes talked about today, at least by some people born in her sort of era." Feb. 11, 2007:
"British radio DJ and television presenter Edith Bowman, originally from Scotland, presents her own radio show every weekday afternoon on Radio 1. Until recently she presented it with Colin Murray, but she has now gone solo." Jan. 6, 2007:
"Normally I'd think of this name as an old lady's name, but a well-known Edith today is the Scottish-born radio DJ and TV presenter Edith Bowman, born in 1975, although I will never forget the Ediths of yester-year including E. Nesbit who wrote "The Railway Children", Edith Wharton, Edith Cavell, Dame Edith Evans, Dame Edith Sitwell, the fictional Edith Artois in the UK sitcom 'Allo 'Allo, or the singer Edith Piaf who sang "Non, je ne regrette rien"" Dec. 8, 2006:
"Edith is a name associated with old ladies.It may be a grandmother name,but it's not hideous like Bertha and Gertrude." Mar. 15, 2006:
