It's interesting how I found the JED.COM site.
I have run across only 3 Jeds and one was named after
me. I signed
up for a
Hotmail account, and the id I wanted (jedw) was taken along with jedw1 and
I found it hard to believe that there would be 4 jedw's out
e mailed them. Jedw responded to me and told me about JED.COM.
When I visited the site, I really couldn't believe it.
reading the letters, it was really funny how we have all had similar
experiences with our name. I've been called Uncle Jed, Hillbilly, Jethro,
Jedi, Jedidiah, Jeb, Chad, Jeff. I don't know how many times I've said "No,
my name is like ED, but with a 'J' on the front".
I may be a little different than the other Jeds. From
I read, it
seemed like Jed was short for something or a nickname. My full name on my
birth certificate is actually Jed. People tend not to believe since it is
an unusual name, but my name is just Jed.
I have gone from knowing of 3 jeds to 67 in a matter of seconds!
