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

  

FRITIGERN.  Visigothic name meaning "spear of peace," from Teutonic fried "peace" and ger "spear."  He was called Frideger by the Germans. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884). 

... Now it came to pass in that troublous time that Lupicinus, the Roman general, invited Fritigern, a chieftain of the Goths, to a feast and, as the event revealed, devised a plot against him.  But Fritigern, thinking no evil, came to the feast with a few followers.  While he was dining in the praetorium he heard the dying cries of his ill-fated men, for, by order of the general, the soldiers were slaying his companions who were shut up in another part of the house.  The loud cries of the dying fell upon ears already suspicious, and Fritigern at once perceived the treacherous trick.  He drew his sword and with great courage dashed quickly from the banqueting-hall, rescued his men from their threatening doom and incited them to slay the Romans. (The Origin and Deeds of the Goths, Jordanes-Mierow, 1908)
