Edgar

Yes, he’s back. 🙂 I was thinking Edgar around Xmas time last year and he’s resurfaced in my quest to put something “on the charts” on a boy. I realised the other day that all the boys names on our list bar Edward, Francis, Oscar (all wildcards) and Arthur are fairly odd, if you get my meaning.

So Edgar. He intrigues me more than Edward. Maybe it’s because of “Twilight” (which was fine but I’m no 16 year old girl anymore and ho hum, am bored with hearing about “teh hot vampire”. Enough already!

Edgar Frog is where my brain goes first. Yeah, I’m generally a vampire fan, but Edgar was a vampire hunter in “Lost Boys” and I’m the perfect age to be a huge fan of that flick! Edgar Rice Burroughs is next for me, Tarzan & John Carter rule! 🙂 Then Edgar Allan Poe third, Big fan of him here. Off the top of my head, there’s also Edgar Degas, he of the ballerinas on canvas and Edgar Cayce, American psychic, too. I’m sure there’s a handful I’m still missing but these few are what I first associate Edgar with myself.

I like Edgar, his brooding, Gothic vibe really appeals to me. But then, deep down inside, I’m a Gothgirl. 🙂 He’s also a bit pugnacious feeling to me, anyone else get that sort of vibe?

Have been thinking combos but only have beginnings:
Edgar Ignatius (for the patriarch)
Edgar Damien
Edgar Conan (Because Arthur doesn’t work, two ‘r’ enders together 😦   )
Edgar John (bland yes, but it’s one of Pop’s middles)
Edgar Blaise/Bleys (Blaise for the Math, Bleys for Zelazny!)
Edgar Graham (His grandpop, too ggg-y?)
Edgar Magnus (just because)
Edgar Florian (I LOVE Florian but realise it’s too flowery for a Yank boy)
Edgar Tiberius (for Kirk)
Edgar Rudolf (because I love him)
Edgar Jocelin (because it’s one of my favorite gone girly boys names and I know better than to use it up front)
Edgar Morgan (Piratey & rummy)
Edgar Xerxes (because I dig the sound and love the strength)
Edgar Malcolm (Malcolm sounds cartoony with my surname up front, so I think he fis well in the middle)
Edgar Maxim (still trying to fit my G. Uncle’s name in somewhere)
Edgar Valentin (another G. Ucle and Pop in a roundabout way)
Edgar Porfirio (Sweet! I love the swoosh of Porfirio!)
Edgar Cotton (as a nod to NE)
Edgar Hugh (I think Hugh softens Edgar up a bit)
Edgar Taliesin (Because I like the myth and have a friend with the name too [‘husband’ of my GF Sue])
Edgar August (For Mom)
Edgar Barnaby (Barnaby lightens up Edgar nicely)
Edgar Malachy (another lightener upper?)
Edgar Phineas (I like his expansive feel next to Edgar)
Edgar Peregrin (as a nod to da MAN)
Edgar Maxfield (for  Parrish, our favorite Artist)
Edgar Lucius (maybe Lucius isn’t so heavy in the middle?)
Edgar Miles/Milo (Still thinking about this one from Josephine)
Edgar Laszlo (One of the G. G. Uncles)

 

And that’s where my brain stops.  There’s a couple (well, more than a couple) that I really like up there. I was trying to stick those more “out there” names he likes in the middle just because I can and I think Edgar carries off the “odd in the middle” quite well.

 

 What do you think of Edgar these days and does anything up there jump out at you?  Let me know, please? 😀
