We named our sweet baby Edlyn, but pronounce it eed-lin and call her Edi for short (just like shortening Edith). People often mispronounce it at first but love it when they learn what it really is. We've had a lot compliments on it because it's unusual but not crazy out there and has a classic sound to it. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it.
