Meaning of the baby name EBORIC.

  

EBORIC.  Gothic and Anglo-Saxon name meaning "wild boar king," from Teutonic eber (A.S. eofor) "wild boar" and ric (A.S. rice) "mighty, powerful, rich, wealthy." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Other forms include Eberik, Eborico, and Evoric.

... He then turned his arms against the Suevi, who were at that time under the power of an usurper, named Andaca, who having deposed Eboric, the son of Mir, their lawful sovereign, had obliged him to shave his head, in order to keep it upon his shoulders; that is, to render himself incapable of the regal dignity, by becoming a priest; a step which had created such jealousies and animosities in the minds of the people, that Leovigilde met with but a very feeble resistance in his passage to Brague, where the usurper kept his court...
... Eboric, Evoric, or Euric, who was very young, and who, before he had wore the crown a year, was dispossessed of it by an ambitious nobleman, whose name was Andaca, contracted to his sister, but who, to fortify his usurpation, espoused Segonce, the widow of king Mir, and the mother-in-law of Eboric, whom he thrust into a monastery, and obliged to enter into holy orders, that he might be incapable of resuming the crown. (An Universal History, Bailey, v.40, 1760)
