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


EILEIFR.  Old Norse name meaning "ever-heir" or "ever-relic," from ei "ever" and laf/leif, from the verb lev, A.S. leafan (leave).  Also spelled Eiláfr.

    AILAF.  Old Norse Eilífr.  On Danish Runic Stones: Ailaif.  Saxo: Eliuus.  Necrologium Lundense: Elif, but Elauus as late as the fourteenth century in Denmark.  Domesday Book:  Elaf (8), Eilaf (7), in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.  Liber Vitae:  Aeilaf, Eilaf.  Eilaf occurs on coins in the tenth century (Grueber), and William the Conqueror has a housecarle of that name in A.D. 1075.  The name is sometimes anglicised as Eglaf, a Danish chieftain in A.D. 1009 (Sym.), and Eglaf who witnesses Cnut's charters in 1023, and four years earlier is called Eilaf (Birch).  Eylaf, a Dane, occurs in the A.S. Chron. 1025.  Eileifr, Eiláfr, the prototypes of this name, are not recorded in literature, but must have existed.  In Norwegian place-names the name appears as Ellev-, Elles-, Els-, and is thus common in Denmark and Norway.
