Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.
Today’s name is a di- or trithematic Germanic name, where we’re relatively confident about the identification of the prototheme. If you have any thoughts about the second (or possibly second and third) themes, we’d love to hear them!
