HILDEFONS.  Gothic.  A variant of Hildefuns (q.v.), of Teutonic origin, meaning "battle-eager," from hild(e) "battle" and fons/funs "eager, fiery."

... Schulze's Gothic Lexicon has fon = πυρ, and Verelius gives fun, fon, ignis. (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882)

... Hildefons von Arx observes, "that it is historical, and wholly in the style of the apostles, relating all the chief events of revelation from the creation of the world to that time," which was the general manner of preaching during the middle ages, as may be proved from all ancient collections. (Mores Catholici; or, Ages of Faith, Digby, 1846)
