I think this is a very sophisticated yet full of youth kind of name. I personally love all the old British names.
-- alexinwonderland  12/30/2006
Ha, I love it how some countries stereotype all British people to speak with posh accents and have names like Edgar. Check popularity charts, there's more Jacks and Lewis than Edgars. In fact I don't even know any elderly British people with this name. Nice stereotyping. Keep it up! *rolls eyes*

Oy, Edgar IS an old British name. OLD. And it does not necessarily mean 'old people' old. It WAS pretty common in the 1800's. Same in America, of course, but I don't think it ever quite reached as high as in Britain. Might want to re-think that comment, eh? *rolls eyes tauntingly*

Edgar is the name of Hope's stuffed pelican in 'Hope was Here'.

I think this name is dashing and sophisticated. It would be nice to see it on a little boy as well as a man.

I LOVE this name! Although that may be because of my intense love for E. A. Poe.

I'm not sure why, but this is a name I like. It could be because Edgar Linton in "Wuthering Heights" is so kind and gentle. Edgar somehow sounds as gentle and elegant.

This name is cool. It sounds English to me (don't ask me why), but of course, my friend is of a Spanish background.

I don't like this name at all. I had a great-uncle named Edgar. When I was a child I couldn't say "Edgar" so I called him "Uncle Egger." Maybe that's why this name always makes me think of egg salad.

Edgar is also used in Portuguese-speaking countries.

Edgar is also used in Spanish and is pronounced the same way as the French pronunciation.

I know someone named Edgar, and everyone who meets him is all like, "Wow your name is Edgar? That's really cool!" It's unique and interesting.

P.S: The Edgar I know is a 13 year old boy.

Edgar Stark is a character in Patrick McGrath's novel ASYLUM, played by Marton Csokas in the film with Natasha Richardson as his lover. One word for this Edgar - HOT! Watch it and you'll see what I mean.
-- littlescarlett  5/27/2009
I don't like the sound of this name very much.
-- Athena Nike  3/20/2010
I think it's a cool name. I've always been fond of old fashioned names (not all of them, though), and this fits better on an adult in my opinion. Eddie or Ed is a cute nickname for him while he's little, though.
-- Black_X  5/11/2010
This name is kind of hard to pronounce.
-- Anonymous User  4/2/2011
This is such a quiet, dignified name. Beats Edward any time.
-- Elizabeth Jane  6/4/2011
Edgar Frog is one of the teenage vampire killers in The Lost Boys.
-- Ryry1996  7/4/2011
While I thought at first that I didn't like this name because it was too stuffy and "old man-ish", the more I think about it the more I like it. I agree with a previous commenter that it feels quiet and dignified, but I can see this name on a rowdy young boy as well, and although it is old fashioned and not in much use nowadays I think it'd be wonderful to meet a little Edgar... unfortunately I doubt I'd be able to convince my fiance to give this name to our son.

A lot of people find this name ugly, but I completely disagree. Edgar is a strong, dignified name that needs to make a comeback. I can see it working on a young boy, and would love to use it on a son.

There is a character with this name in the video game Final Fantasy 6.

I'm pretty sure the English king Edgar is not regarded as a saint (his daughter Edith of Wilton however, is). The only King of England who is a saint is Edward the Confessor. [noted -ed]

The greedy butler from the Disney movie "The Aristocats" was named Edgar.
-- HetaliaGirl1  3/20/2013
I think this is a good, strong name for a boy, although I don't care for the nickname of "ed" or "eddie".
-- autumn23  3/31/2013
I like Edge as a nickname for Edgar. I've also seen Gar used as a nickname.

Nine years of comments, and no one's mentioned yet that J. Edgar Hoover was the longtime director the FBI?
