Etymology of the name ETHELMAR.
Meaning of the baby name ETHELMAR.

  

ETHELMAR.  The same as Anglo-Saxon Æthelmaer (q.v.), meaning "noble greatness." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... The See, vacated by the death of Raley in 1250, was filled by the election of Ethelmar,... the king's half-brother by the marriage of the queen-dowager with Hugh, Earl of March.  Ethelmar had neither morals nor learning, nor the requisite age, nor previous orders in the church, to recommend him for the episcopate; but the monks had suffered too severely in the preceding contest, and were besides convinced that they should not be supported by the Pope against the King; they therefore acqueisced in Henry's proposal... (Cathedral Antiquities: Winchester, Lichfield, and Hereford, Britton, 1836)
