My husband's grandfather was named Edsel. And we named our son after him.

Unusual choice, and I do quite like it, as any name that can be shortened to Ed has some appeal. I still prefer Edward, Edwin, Edmund and Edgar, though.

I think this name is wonderful and unusual. I don't like or drive Fords, I just think this is a badass name for a little boy! Very unexpected choice.
