There is something very mysterious about this name but I like it. It is so beautiful and quiet.

Enid puts me in mind of an anemic, washed-out secretary who wears faded, oversized cardigans.

I like this. It's cute.

Enid makes me think of a quietly strong girl who is very pale and sickly.

This name seems way too foreign. It sounds more like a guy's name, and it's DISGUSTING!
-- Taydbug112  6/5/2007
I don't think of this name as unisex, but as a girl's name only, at any rate a once-popular name now associated with old ladies.

There IS a similar-sounding name, the Hebrew name Enoch, which is a guys' name or rather a grandad name nowadays.

The name is a bit old-fashioned, but not ugly or weird at all. It makes me picture a shy, mousy, wallflower-y, yet pretty girl.

Nyd, isn't that an insult? This name sounds like it should be, sorry, personal opinion! It hideous.

I have heard this pronounced as both EE-nid and eh-NEED.
-- telfalathiel  2/25/2009
It's an ugly old lady name, plus some of Enid Blyton's books are accused of being racist and/or sexist, so that puts me off.

This name reminds me of two things:
1. The Barenaked Ladies song (good song, by the way)
2. A bug
Don't ask about the second one. Enid just sounds like it would be a type of bug--to me, anyway.

I quite like this name, despite some of the other comments on this page. Yes, I think this is a strong, and yet, beautiful, name. :)

Also, I would like to say that in my book of name meanings, the name Enid is said to be derived from the Celtic Welsh "Enid", meaning "purity", but also alternatively Enid could be derived from "Enit", which is Latin and means "woodlark" (a pretty type of speckled bird, which is mainly found in Northern Europe). :)

A pretty wallflower of a name. I'd use it.

Enid Rollins was the best friend of Elizabeth Wakefield in the Sweet Valley series. She was supposed to be very brainy so I always associate this name with someone who is nerdy.

I have never known anyone with this name personally; it is only familiar to me as the names of authors. Therefore, I have never heard it pronounced. If it's pronounced EE-nid, I think it's hideous, but En-id, (the first syllable rhyming with hen) is nice.
-- thesnowwhiterose  5/4/2011
The Welsh pronunciation is En-id, though outside of Wales it is often pronounced Ee-nid. (I prefer the Welsh pronunciation myself.)
-- Kosta  7/18/2011
I want to like it, but I just can't do it. It has a cool meaning though. I prefer En-id to EE-nid.
-- GibsonGirl  11/5/2011
Makes me think of an old woman that is mostly toothless and musty-smelling. Really an awful name.

The real name of actress (Dame) Diana Rigg is Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg.

This name is also commonly found in Latin America (also as a feminine name), although I am not sure whether the etymology is the same in the case of the Latin Americans. It may possibly derive from something else entirely (perhaps from an Aztec or Native American word) and just happen to look the same as the Welsh name Enid.

Enid Hartle was a British opera singer.

The name Enid (pronounced E-need or Eh-need) is used often in Puerto Rico as a first name and more frequently as a middle name. I have friends, family members and a daughter with that name... and it's also my first name.
