US Popularity:26083
Meaning:Rich guardian
Hip and historic, Ed is a boy's name whose shorthand style exudes sleek, modern coolness in the face of its noble roots. British in origin, Ed is a simple variation of Edward or Edmund and means “rich guardian.” 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.
