Edmund (plural Edmunds)

  1. A male given name from Old English, borne by early English kings and saints.
    • 1591 (date written), William Shakespeare, “The Second Part of Henry the Sixt, []”, in Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies. [] (First Folio), London: [] Isaac Iaggard, and Ed[ward] Blount, published 1623, →OCLC, (please specify the act number in uppercase Roman numerals, and the scene number in lowercase Roman numerals):
      : Act II, Scene II:
      This Edmund, in the reign of Bolingbroke, / As I have read, laid claim unto the crown; / And but for Owen Glendower, had been king, / Who kept him in captivity till he died.
    • 1814 May 9, [Jane Austen], chapter IV, in Mansfield Park: [], volume II, London: [] [George Sidney] for T[homas] Egerton, [], →OCLC, pages 79–80:
      To me, the sound of Mr. Bertram is so cold and nothing-meaning—so entirely without warmth or character!—It just stands for a gentleman, and that's all. But there is nobleness in the name of Edmund. It is a name of heroism and renown—of kings, princes, and knights; and seems to breathe the spirit of chivalry and warm affections.
