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


ERMENIGELD.  Gothic name composed of the Teutonic elements ermen "universal" or "public," and gild "pledge," hence "public pledge." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)  Also spelled Erminigeld, Ermingild, Hermangild, HermengildEormengild is an Anglo-Saxon form.

Ermenigeld rebelled against his father Liobagiltis in 582.  The most probable cause of this rebellion was his mother Goisvintha.  He married a Catholic wife named Ingunda, and her uncle Leander being the bishop of Seville, persuaded Ermenigeld to become a Catholic.  But Goisvintha was a bigoted Arian, and once she grabbed her daughter-in-law by the hair, and dragged her to an Arian priest for baptism.  Ermenigeld became angry at his mother and on account of this he quarreled with his father. (Guthones, Rackus, 1929)
