Meaning of the baby name EADMUND.

  

EADMUND.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "happy protection," from Old English ead "happy, rich," and mund "hand; protection, guardianship." (A Dictionary of the Anglo-Saxon Language, Bosworth, 1838)

Eadmund, or happy protection, is one of our most English names, belonging to the king of East Anglia, who, as the first victim of the Danes, became the patron saint of Bury St. Edmund's, and the subject of various legends.  The sudden deaths of Sweyn, and afterwards of Eustace de Blois, when engaged in ravaging his shrine, made him be regarded as an efficient protector; and Henry III., when he had the good taste to make his sons Englishmen, christened the second after this national saint, so that Edmunds were always to be found in the House of Plantagenet, and thence among the nobility and the whole nation... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
