Etymology of the name AMLETH.
Meaning of the baby name AMLETH.

  

AMLETH.  Danish form of Icelandic Amlódi (Eng. Hamlet), meaning "dull, foolish, imbecile, weak person." (The Nine Books of the Danish History of Saxo Grammaticus, Elton-Powell, 1906).  This name appears on an 8th-century runic inscription on the Westeremden yew-wand.

... So men were commissioned to draw the young man in his rides into a remote part of the forest, and there assail him with a temptation of this nature.  Among these chanced to be a foster-brother of Amleth, who had not ceased to have regard to their common nurture; and who esteemed his present orders less than the memory of their past fellowship.  He attended Amleth among his appointed train, being anxious not to entrap, but to warn him; and was persuaded that he would suffer the worst if he showed the slightest glimpse of sound reason, and above all if he did the act of love openly.  This was also plain enough to Amleth himself... (Norrśna: The History and Romance of Northern Europe, Anderson-Elton, v.1, 1905).
