Edsel is a masculine name of German origin, derived from Etzel, meaning “noble.” A name that recalls ancient Germanic myth, the epic poem Song of the Nibelungs features Etzel (aka Attila the Hun), king of Hungary and the second husband of Kriemhild. Edsel takes a softer approach, swapping the harsh “tz” for a smoothening “ds,” allowing the name to trip off the tongue. Automobile enthusiasts may think of Edsel Ford of the Ford Motor Company. Short and sweet, Edsel’s chime is sure to help baby go far.
