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

  

EADGYTH.  Scottish Saxon name, equated by some authors with Anglo-Saxon Eadgifu (q.v.), meaning "rich gift," from Old English ead "fortune, riches, prosperity" and gifu "gift."  Some derive the latter element from gy "battle, war." 

... Eadgyth was undoubtedly the name of Earl Godwin's daughter, of whom Ingulf said, "Sicut spina rosam, genuit Godwinus Egitham;" but in the roll of her lands in Domesday, she is Eddeva, Eddid, and Edeva, and for some time Edeva seems to have been used among the Normans, though the queen of Henry I. was not allowed to retain anything so Saxon... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
