Etymology of the name EGBERT.
Meaning of the baby name EGBERT.


EGBERT.  German name meaning "bright or glorious as Œgir."  Sometimes a variant of Ekbert ("bright sword").  Usage: Germany, Holland. 
    Egbert van der Poel (d. 1664), was a Dutch Golden Age genre and landscape painter. (Wiki)

... The name of the river Oder, or Eider, means Œgir's door, the way by which the sea comes into the land... Of men the Asir gave names to Egar and Egbert: bright or glorious as Œgir.  To it we also owe the word Ogre:  a dreadful creature like Œgir, and Egg: to urge on, to drive forwards as the waves do towards the shore. (The Names We Bear, Long, 1877).

EGBERT.  Anglicized form of Anglo-Saxon Ecgberht (q.v.), meaning "bright-eyed."
    Egbert of Lindisfarne (d. 821), was Bishop of Lindisfarne. (Wiki)

... When Egbert (or Ecgbeorht), as he chose to spell his name, and to whom was attributed, not without reason, the title of Great, had conquered and amalgamated with his own kingdom of Wessex, those of Kent, Sussex, and Essex, taking, therefore, four of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms under his own undivided rule; we are informed that he exacted tribute from the kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria, but protected the East-Angles... (The Church of England Quarterly Review. v. 41, 1857)
