    I actually don't hate it. I like the nn Edie (pronounced ee-dee, like Edie Sedgwick) for girls A LOT!
    I'm not a big Rose fan normally, but used with Edison, I think it gives it a little feminine flair.

    I genuinely don't understand how you can simultaneously be attracted to a masculine/surname for your daughter, with the word -son right there, but also feel nervous about it being masculine and attaching Rose. It's like the ultimate mixed signal.
    Absolutely this. There are surnames that work for girls; anything with 'son' or meaning 'son of' does not work. At all.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Mariner | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve

    If I were a little girl I'd not want to be stuck with the name Edison-Rose. It'sjust not a nice name.

    Addison Rose
    Madison Rose overused? Yes, but not Edison.
    Proud mama to L. and S.E.R.

    From reading your prior posts it looks like you want to avoid something common [who doesn't ] and would like a strong girl's name which is nickname-proof.

    I don't hate it, but I'd only use a unique surname for a girl's first name if it was a family name or had some particular significance.
