Etymology of the name FERNANDO.
Meaning of the baby name FERNANDO.

  

FERNANDO.  Spanish form of Gothic Ferhonanths (q.v.), meaning "daring youth," from ferchvus "life, youth," and nanth "daring."

San Fernando, king of Castille, and father of England's Eleanor, made this name a favourite for his royal line; and a younger son of Castille so called, being heir of Aragon, carried it thither, and thence it passed to southern France, where the grandson of old King René was Ferrand or Ferry. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
