Etymology of the name GUNHILD.
Meaning of the baby name GUNHILD.

  

GUNHILD.  Scandinavian form of Old Norse Gunnhildr (q.v.), meaning "war battle-maid."

    Gunhild was the Danish princess whose murder on St. Brice's night brought her brother Sweyn down in fury upon England; and her nephew Knud likewise had a daughter so called, but who was Anglicized into Æthelthryth; and each generation of the Godwine family records a lady Gunhild.  After the Conquest, however, Gunhild died away in England; but it has never been discarded in the North, where it is now called Gunnilda, or Gunula. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
