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

  

BRENHILDA.  Spanish-Gothic form of Old High German Brunihilt (q.v.), meaning "breast-plated battle maid."

... No doubt Brynhild was commemorated by the name of the Gothic princess, daughter of King Athanagild, who, for her misfortune, was married to the Frank Sigebert, and through the whole of her life continued a fierce and dauntless resistance to her savage rival Fredegund, until, when both were aged women, Brenhilda fell into her rival's power, and was implacably sentenced to be dragged to death by wild horses. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
