Too much E sound?

With 2 and a half weeks to go, we are down to the top 5 for each gender: lucky bubs hasn't come early!
My front runner for a boy's name is Edward from the 5. Surname is one syllable, rhyming with fence! Somehow it just feels a little awkward on the tongue... But it's otherwise both our favourites. Number 2 would be Hamish, purely because the other 3 are way too popular at the moment...
Edward Fence? Sound OK?

Edward Fence sounds fine.
I would however choose Hamish as its a favourite of mine.

I think Edward Fence sounds fine and I prefer Edward to Hamish.

It's better than Edward Woodward lol.
I prefer Hamish.

Edward Fence also sounds good to me, although I like Hamish too - don't think you can go wrong with either.

Nice name, but when I said it aloud I heard "Ed-wood Fence".

But the surname isnt really fence, it just rhymes with fence - so 'wood fence' isnt a problem.
I think Edward or Hamish would both be fine OP.

Edward would be fine and I prefer Edward over Hamish as well.

Both Edward and Hamish are nice names. However might be alot of "s" sounds when Hamish is combined with a last name sounding like fence?? Don't know if that would worry you or not, but just putting it out there as you were concerned about too much "e" sound.

Edward is nice, and I don't see a problem with your last name. I prefer Hamish, though!

Another vote for Edward here. And I don't see a problem with your surname.

Thanks all! With just over 2 weeks to go, it'll be nice to have the names locked in. Now to pack my hospital bag, and set up the nursery.......

I absolutely love Edward (it is DS2's MN) and I think it sounds fine.
(Like Hamish too, just not as much).

If it were TRULY Fence, and I get that it's not, it would annoy me simply because my favourite nickname for Edward is Ward, and Ward Fence is not nice and sounds vaguely prison/asylum-ish.
As it is, Edward is fine. I am inexplicably fonder of Edmund but not for reasons of flow (not for any "real" reason honestly) and I do not see anything wrong with Edmund 1-syllable last.

I quite like Edmund too, but DP scrubbed it off the list. Would have gone nicely with the surname too, sigh.

Love Edward. Sounds great.
I had to compromise on Edmund with Edward too but since I really just wanted an Eddie, it's okay.
