    I really don't care for it. I know the "old lady" names are making somewhat of a comeback, but Edith still sounds very clunky to me. Edie is an OK nickname.

    I think it's a nice name. Borders on stuffy for me, but the spunky vintage nickname Edie makes it more accessible.

    I immediately think of Edith Crawley from Dowton Abbey. Other than that I think it is a little bit dated of a name.

    I utterly adore it- my sister's name is Eden, and I sometimes call her Edith as a nickname, as her name honours my great grandmother, Edith Flora. I don't think it is stuffy or dated at all- I see it as wispy but strong, with a spunky and charming sound. If Eden wasn't my sister's name, it would certainly be one of my top contenders. I think it is very dignified- something I highly value in a name.
