ERIK.  From Old Norse Eiríkr (q.v.), meaning "always mighty."  An ancient Erik was said to have been admitted among the gods. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)  Usage: America, England, France, Germany, Scandinavian countries.

Eric or Erik I., surnamed The Good, King of Denmark, began to reign about 1095.  It was by his request that the pope gave Denmark an archbishop.  He was noted for piety, and undertook a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, but died on the way, in the island of Cyprus, in 1103.  His brother, Nicholas, obtained the throne in 1105.  Eric I. left three sons, Harold, Canute, and Eric. (Universal Pronouncing Dictionary of Biography and Mythology, Thomas, 1908)
