A famous bearer is American poet Edwin Arlington Robinson (December 22, 1869 – April 6, 1935). He won 3 Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry, for his works "Collected Poems" in 1922, "The Man Who Died Twice" in 1925, and "Tristram" in 1928.

Edwin Powell Hubble (November 20, 1889 – September 28, 1953) was an American astronomer. He profoundly changed astronomers' understanding of the nature of the universe by demonstrating the existence of other galaxies besides the Milky Way. He also discovered that the degree of redshift observed in light coming from a galaxy increased in proportion to the distance of that galaxy from the Milky Way. This became known as Hubble's law, and would help establish that the universe is expanding.

They also named the now famous orbital telescope after him. :)

For some reason I find this name completely adorable. It has a sort of vintage charm, which is what I love. We are thinking about naming our son Edwin =)

Otherwise known as the most famous iteration of the GUO DUO YAO. This contemporary figure was once reknowned for his absurd lack of any ability whatsoever in the field of human communication, henceforth the name Edwin would later be adopted to commonly refer to any individual with a low emotional quotient (EQ).

Would take ages to separate from Edward, although this one is much more unheard of. It sounds slightly Welsh, I think.

I love the name Edwin simply because it is my grandfather's name, and if I ever have a son I hope to name him Edwin after my grandfather. It also has a unique charm to it. I think this name is 1000x better than Edward.

Edwin Booth, older brother of presidential assassin John Wilkes Booth, was considered the most famous actor of his generation.

Not the smartest choice to name a kid Edwin. Here in Chicago, Edwin is uncommon and most people here don't like the name. The name is genderless- Edwin or Edwina (Edna). Edwin also for me isn't the smartest person and are usually... not that good. So I recommend to not use the name Edwin since it sucks and the true meaning is pathetic.

I love it! Sounds nice, isn’t too popular but definitely recognizable.

Ed and Eddie are cute nicknames. And the meaning is also nice.
