    I voted for Edmund. It is softer than Edmond, which I imagine being shouted by strict, sharp-featured French noblewoman.

    I prefer Edmund, it looks better and also Edmond I'd want to pronounce the 'o' more.

    I think both are nice, but I went with Edmund, as I can come up with more (literary, historical) associations with this spelling.
    Loving right now:
    Eulalie Catharina, Beatrix Eveline, Cecily Morgana
    Ivo Marius, Euan Casper, Remy Nathaneal, Crispin Adair

    I would only use the Edmond spelling if I had French ancestry or lived in a French speaking area of the world.

    Edmund is the traditional spelling for English speakers and for some reason, I think it looks more strong and masculine with a "u" than an "o".
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Ditto this exactly Irish great granddad was an Edmond.
