I don't think this website is for extensive name info, it's more for discussing opinions, in my experience.

Nameberry's description of this name is rude and uncalled for, especially when there are other ridiculous or "creatively" spelled names that they adore. It makes me question the authenticity of this website. Bleh.

I don't think most Edwards are called Edward. I know about five and they all go by Ed(die).
