Correct husband for her (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

edith

Here is my best explanation:

'her' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'correct husband' is the subsidiary indication.

'correct' becomes 'edit' (I've seen this before).

'husband' becomes 'h'.

'edit'+'h'='edith'

'for' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for edith that I've seen before include "Woman's name", "Female name", "Girl", "- - Piaf, singer", "- Cavell, WW 1 heroine", "- Cavell, nurse executed in 1915", "Woman", "Cavell, Piaf or Wharton", "Dame ----- Evans (1888-1976), stage and screen actress" and "Dame - Sitwell, English poet (Facade)".)
