    Edward is Mr. Rochester's first name.

    However, Jane does NOT call him by his given or Christian name until they are married. It wasn't done in those days.

    In fact, some women continued to call their husbands Mr. __ even after marriage. An example of that can be seen in Emma by Jane Austen. Emma can't bring herself to call Mr. Knightley by his given name, George, so she continues to call him Mr. Knightley.
