Meaning of the baby name BALDUR.

  

BALDUR.  Icelandic form of Old Norse Baldr (q.v.), meaning "prince." 

Most beautiful of all the gods was Baldur, the fair white god, mild, beautiful, and eloquent,—beloved but fore-doomed to death.  His story is well known.  His mother, Frigga, vainly took an oath of all created things not be the instrument of his fate,—she omitted the mistletoe; and Lok, the destroyer, having, in the guise of a sympathetic old woman, beguiled her into betraying her omission, placed a shaft of the magic plant in the hands of the blind god, Hodr, when all the Aasir were in sport directing their harmless weapons against the breast of their favourite.  Baldur was slain, and his beautiful wife, Nanna, died of grief for his loss. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
