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

  

GEIRTHRUD.  Old Norse name meaning "spear maid," from gjer "spear" and the feminine termination trud "girl, maid."

    The chief favourite amongst the spear titles seems to have been once a Valkyr name Gertrud, or Geirthrud, the spear maid; for, alas! the pretty interpretation that has caused so many damsels of late to bear it, as meaning all truth, is utterly untenable, unless they will regard themselves as allegorically constant battle-maids, armed with the spear of Ithuriel. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
