Meaning:prosperous guardian; fortune; wealth
Hip and historic, Ed is a boy's name whose shorthand style oozes slick modern coolness in the face of its noble roots. British in origin, Ed is a simple variation of Edward from the Old English Eadward. Where Edward means "prosperous guardian," Ed appears to possess the more fortuitous half of this illustrious meaning. Composed of the ead element of the medieval title, Ed means "fortune" or "wealth." As a name marked by fine lineages and kingly figures, it would seem Ed is dripping in riches and prosperity. But the name also embraces choice. Unbound and unrestricted, little Ed may find merit in materials, company, or chivalry, knowing that no matter their preference they will never be without.
