Etymology of the name ERVIGIUS.
Meaning of the baby name ERVIGIUS.


ERVIGIUS.  Latinized form of Gothic Erwig (q.v.), meaning "army warrior."  The name of a Visigothic king of Spain.

    2 Ervigius is said, I known not on what authority, by Galliard (Hist. de la Rivalite de la France et de l'Espagne, i. 58), to have been the grandson of the son of that son of Errmengild and Ingunthis who was taken to Constantinople after his father's execution.  He was in all probability no Goth, but a true Graeculus or low Roman, the son of one Ardobastes; and he was born, it is said, at either Byzantium or Carthagena.  He is hardly entitled to the Gothic, albeit most evil-sounding, name of Erwig; and he has been usually spoken of by modern writers as Ervigius.  But as he was an adopted Goth long before he was a usurping king, and more especially as the last Roman or Graeco-Roman had left Spain before he was born, it is scarcely worth while to be inconsistent for the sake of a fancy, and I have treated him as an Erwig... (A History of Spain, Burke, v.1, 1895)
