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


CHUNIMUND.  Old German variant of Teutonic Kunimund (q.v.), meaning "able protection."  This was the name of a king of the Suevi Langobards, 6th cent. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... During this visit, Alboin beheld Rosamond, the beautiful daughter of Chunimund; and soon after he demanded her of her father in marriage.  Chunimund haughtily refused him; and Alboin immediately collected an army, and fell upon the Gepidæ, whom he utterly destroyed.  He carried off Rosamond as prisoner, and obliged her to marry him.  Chunimund had been killed in the contest; and his head cut off by Alboin's command, and the skull converted into a drinking cup, mounted in gold. (Stories from the History of Italy, Manning, 1831)
