The English name Edward derives from root words:

ead

Wealth

weard

Guard

Hence the meaning of Edward is ‘Wealthy Guardian’ or some say ‘Rich Guard’

There were many kings and princes throughout history named Edward, making it a good royal moniker. There was also Saint Edward (Edward the Confessor or the Peacemaker – also a king), the patron saint of kings, divorcees and those in troubles marriages.

Edward is in the same realm as names Henry, George and Louis, because of their royal heritage. But it also reminds me of Wingard, Orland and Vander.
