The Edda is also a collection of folk-tales relating to Norse Mythology or Norse heroes. The most well-known are the Icelandic Poetic Edda (also known as Elder Edda) and the Prose Edda (also known as the Younger Edda), both of which were written during the 13th century.

Edda was Audrey Hepburn's real name.

Her full name was Edda Kathleen van Heemstra Hepburn-Ruston.

Contrary to popular belief, Audrey Hepburn's real name was not Edda. She was born Audrey Kathleen Ruston in Brussels in 1929. However, she did unofficially adopt the name Edda during the war when it was dangerous to have an English-sounding name in occupied Europe.

Benito Mussolini's daughter and oldest child was named Edda. After her husband voted against the dictator, Edda appealed to her father, but without success.

Italian pronunciation:


The "E" equals quite nearly "Hey" (while excluding the "H"). Be certain to clearly pronounce both "DD"s-- which is most easily accomplished by placing extra emphasis on the letter found directly before ("E") and slowly following through until rounding it off with the final "A" (as in Father).

Edda Magnason is a Swedish musician (her dad is Icelandic).

This name is very pretty :) I so slightly prefer Etta, or if its pronounced like the commenter above says, a more logical spelling in my opinion would be Ada. Both pronunciations are beautiful!
