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

  

EADGIFU.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "rich gift," from Old English ead "happiness; prosperity, riches," and gifu "gift."

    It was a time of contractions.  Between English and French, names were oddly twisted; Alberic into Aubrey, Randolf into Ralph, Ethelthryth into Awdry, Eadgifu into Edith, Mathilda into Maude, Adelheid into Alice.
...
    Eadswith, Eadgifu, and Eadgyth, all once separate names, together with Adelgifu and Ælfgifu, seem to have been all mixed up together by the Normans... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
