Etymology of the name GUNNHILDR.
Meaning of the baby name GUNNHILDR.

  

GUNNHILDR.  Variant spelling of Old Norse Gunhildr (q.v.), meaning "war battle-maid," from gunnr "war," and hildr "battle" (poetically "maiden").

... And when Thórðr grew up, he was mighty and strong, promising, hard and furious against all whom he thought little of, but friendly towards the people; he was munificent with his money, gentle of conversation, and a streadfast friend; he was a great jovial man, the most nimble at sports, could swim better than any one, and was a good poet.  At the time when this happened, the sons of Gunnhildr reigned over Norway; and when Thórðr grew up, he wished to become one of the men of King Gamli, the son of Gunnhildr, who of all men was the most beloved King of Norway, with the exception of Hákon Aðalsteinsfóstri. (Summer Traveling in Iceland, Coles, 1882).
