Traditionally viewed as a regal name (it was the name of eight kings of England since the Norman Conquest, after all), Edward may now be more closely associated with romantic vampires instead, à la Edward Cullen of the Twilight series. But have no fear, supernatural or not, Edward is a classic name that may fall in and out of vogue, but will always stand the test of time. Plus it comes with a handful of nicknames, and everyone loves nicknames, right?
