Most everything I've seen has said Ford-Edsel.

I've heard two variations but don't know what is correct:

1. Ford Edsel

2. Ford Engine

I remember a discussion about this on the www.Fomoco.com Forum but can't remember what the final conclusion was.

I've always thought of it as Fe... the element iron. Greek or latin for ferrous (ferris wheel).
Lots and lots of iron.

It means "Ford Engine" (not Ford Edsel or Ford Engineering, as others say)
There was also a family of medium- and heavy-duty truck engines based on the FE Series of engines called "FT", which stands for (you guessed it) Ford Truck.
