"It's my first name, and in high school I hated it (secretly wanted to be a Susan). But since then, I've come to like it as unusual, if not unique. Most people mispronounce my name with a short E; my family has always pronounced it with a long E in the first syllable. I was born in 1946 and had never heard of the book until now, and only came across it once but wouldn't you know? edrie.com was already taken when I tried to get it for my website." Jul. 24, 2014:
"I am an "Edrie" and love it! It is nice to have a different name. Yes, it is usually mis-pronounced. When correcting people I tell them "think of Eddie with an 'r'." That helps. I, too, was told that the name came from a book. The Edrie in the book was a nun in England, from whence came my grandmother AND for me at least, the name." May. 11, 2010:

"My name is Edrier. My mother did make that up.
My father's name was Edward Grier. She combined the two names and left out the "g".
She pronounced it with a long E but we have changed over the years and I now pronounce it with a short e." Jul. 30, 2019:
"My name is Edrie, I was named after an Irish nurse my mother worked with. Many people mispronounce my name, my name is pronounced Ee-dr-ee. I love my name. It beautiful and unique and I always know when someone is talking to me." Aug. 17, 2017:
"My name is Edrie. I was named after my great aunt and she also named her daughter Edrie. I pronounce it with a little e as in Edward. I too have had many people mispronounce it but the biggest problem has been that I have been assigned to boy's cabins in camp, boy's phy ed classes etc. Overall, I have received positive comments about my name. I would like to get a hold of the book Edrie's Legacy but I am having trouble since it was written so long ago." Sep. 6, 2016:
"My aunt, born in 1903, was named Edrie because her mother read "Edrie's Legacy". When I was born on my aunt's birthday, I got Edrie for a middle name. We all pronounce it with a short "e". I recently found and purchased a copy of the book (through the internet). Can't wait for it to arrive. Author is Georgie Sheldon. JEdrie" Feb. 25, 2012:
"Edrie is my name. It has been both a blessing and a curse. My grandmother's name was Edrie and she was born in 1905. I always wondered about the origin of the name. I could not ask her as she died in 1940. Many people think my family "made up" the name. We pronounce it with a short E." Jan. 18, 2010:
"My mother was born in 1911 and was one of twin girls. They wanted a name to go with Edna and my great aunt was reading the book Edrie's Legacy. Therefore that is how she got her name. We have always pronouned it Edrea. I also have found copies of the book which are a treasure to our family." Mar. 14, 2009:
"My name is Edrie and the name has been our family for 5 generations as a middle name for most of the women. It is interesting because I was always told the name came from a book and was a conversion from Edward. My family has always pronounced it with long E. I'd love to have the book." Jan. 8, 2009:
"Yes, I have met other people with the name Edrie. But no one every knew that it came from a book called "Edrie's Legacy". The book was published in 1895. My mother was named after the book in 1907 and I was named after her in 1940. I have a copy of the book. The little girl in the book was named after her father whose name was Edward. Has anyone else heard of this book? [email protected]" Jun. 23, 2007:
"My family pronounce this name with a long e as in the word "equate" and not as in Edward. I was constantly told by teachers when school. that my way of pronouncing my name was not right and that I should tell my parents they should change my name to something else that would be less diffacult to pronounce. Have not meet anyone with this name in all of my 75 years." Mar. 14, 2006:
