Pretty but not in English :( Use Edith

Impwood Says:


Edit is not an English name. It is usually pronounced "EE-deet", not "ED-it". However, when I see it on paper, I must admit that I automatically think of the latter, not the former.

OMG I agree

Zelliew Says:


Exactly !

babymagic Says:


In some languages the name Edit is pronounced Ed-eet (and Judit is pronounced Yud-eet), which is a whole lot better. It would be tough to pull off in English though.

Jagienka Says:


Edit this name.

Same... I think I like it, but what with computers and everything (seriously, if you're reading this, you're on one right now) 'edit' has become common usage with typing. :( Sadly.

clairels Says:


I love the pronunciation Ay-DEET, like Edith Piaf. But maybe it would be better to spell it Edite.

I respect the etymology, but I just don't think this is going to work in the real world.
