This name is enjoying a mini renaissance, which I don't find surprising - Edmond is a lovely name, handsome and classic. However, I feel like a lot (not all, obviously) English-speaking people think it's pronounced "ed-mond", when in fact it's something like "ed-mawn", which is why outside of France, I prefer Edmund.

Edmond is SO much better than the common name Edward! I would totally use Edmund over Edward.

Edmond Hoyle (1679-1762) was an English lawyer and writer, well-known for his knowledge of the strategies and rules of card and board games. He wrote many treatises on games like whist (his specialty), chess, backgammon, piquet, quadrille, etc. The phrase "according to Hoyle", i.e. in accord with the highest authority, comes from him.
