Edward Name Meaning
English and Welsh: from the Middle English personal name Edward (Old English Ēadweard from ēad ‘prosperity fortune’ + w(e)ard ‘guard ward’). The popularity of the personal name was largely due to its being the name of the sainted Anglo-Saxon king Edward the Confessor and of three kings in the 13th–14th centuries.
