Origin of the name ATHANAGILD.
Etymology of the name ATHANAGILD.
Meaning of the baby name ATHANAGILD.

  

ATHANAGILD.  Early Gothic name.  Yonge makes it a variant form of Athalagild (q.v.), and renders both names "noble pledge."

Grimm connects Gothic names beginning with Athan-/Athana- with ažna- (year).  And there is a Lithanian word giltis, meaning "death."  Could this name have been first given to someone born in a "year of death"?

... Perhaps Grimm was right in connecting Athanaric, Athanagild with ažna- "year"; if so, it was possible that "Jornandes" (the name given in sum MSS. to the historian Jordanis) was properly "Jernanps," the first element being from the same word as our "year." (Transactions of the Philological Society, 1887)
