    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Edward, Old English Ēadward, composed of the elements ēad ‘prosperity’, ‘fortune’ + w(e)ard ‘guard’. The English personal name also became popular on the Continent as a result of the fame of the two canonized kings of England, Edward the Martyr ( 962–79 ) and Edward the Confessor ( 1004–66 ). They certainly contributed largely to its great popularity in England.
