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


ERIC.  French.  From Latin Ericus (q.v.), from Scandinavian Erik (q.v.), Old Norse Eiríkr (q.v.), meaning "always mighty."  Also spelled Erec.  Usage: America, Denmark, England, France. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

Eric IV., V., and VI., Kings of Denmark in the thirteenth century, reigned during a period fruitful in revolutions and disorders.  Powerful vassals aspired to independence, and the clergy admitted no supremacy but that of the pope.  Eric IV. began to reign in 1241, and died by violence in 1250.  Eric V. succeeded his father, Christopher I., in 1259, and was assassinated in 1286.  His son, Eric VI., began to reign in 1286, waged war against Norway, and died in 1319, leaving the throne to his brother, Christopher II. (Universal Pronouncing Dictionary of Biography and Mythology, Thomas, 1908)
