I don't think I would name a girl Edwina, they might get called Wina.

I think ed-WEEN-a is absolutely hideous but ed-WIN-a is okay.

I think this is an ugly old lady name.

I know a girl named Edwina. She constantly gets mistaken for Edwin.

It would be so refreshing to hear this name on a young girl today.

There was an Edwina in the tv series "The Simpsons". Abe Simpson met her in WWII in England and had a romantic relationship with her. She gave birth to his daughter Abbie. He learned about this only decades later.

Edwina is a gorgeous, glamorous name!
Well, when pronounced ed-WIN-ah, it is quite plain, but ed-WEEN-ah makes me think of a gorgeous brunette with green eyes who is outgoing and bold. ^^

My name is Edwina. I get heaps of nick names from it such as Weenie, Dweenie, Eddie, Ed, Eedee, Weens and Weena just to name a few. A friend once introduced me as Eddie and the other person thought my full name Edward! I love my name, I think its unique, old fashioned and pretty. Though I don't like all the nick names from it especially Weena!

There's one I never liked. "Ed" just sounds too masculine to me. "Weena" is terrible, but if you pronounce it "win-uh," it's okaaayyyy... still don't care for it, though. And I find it much easier to picture on an elderly woman than a young girl.

My name's Edwina! I was named after my great grandad who was Edwin and my mothers middle name is Edwina also.

I've never liked my name- I'd always get called Eddie, ed, weena. My grandma would call me dweena and I've never minded that. Since I was about 13 I changed my name to Dena and I still go by this name. It's like my alias but now that I'm in my 20's Edwina is growing on me.

I don't think it's pretty but I think it sounds classy and sophisticated when said the right way. Maybe I'll go back to being called Edwina soon.. Who knows.

I have positive associations with this name, because the main character of Jennifer Saunder's hilarious TV series Absolutely Fabulous was originally named Edwina Margaret Rose Monsoon before she changed her name to Edina. She is nearly always called Eddy on the show except by her mother, who continues to call her Edwina.
