Etymology of the name BALDERIK.
Meaning of the baby name BALDERIK.


BALDERIK.  Variant form of German Baldrich (q.v.), meaning "bold ruler."  Usage: Germany, Holland, Sweden, Switzerland. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

Imed dying, Adela married Balderik, nephew of Count Godfrey of the district of Attuaria (around Cleves).  Balderik bore the reputation of a bold fighter.  The husband and wife were soon heard from.  Balderik took possession of Elten again, but by imperial orders speedily evacuated it.  A new attempt, just after the emperor's death, was equally unsuccessful.  His successor, Henry II., also protected the convent.  Meanwhile, Balderik's uncle, Count Godfrey, died, leaving a half-witted son and a daughter married to the young Saxon Count Wichman.  Between Balderik and this Wichman, there was now enmity concerning the guardianship of Godfrey's idiot son.  Wichman's chief fortress was besieged by Balderik, and the left bank of the Rhine was terribly devastated.  Finally the emperor restored peace, and Wichman went on a pilgrimage to Rome.  The last invasions of the Northmen occurring at this time, Balderik distinguished himself in repelling them. (History of the People of the Netherlands, Blok, v.1, 1898)
