HILDEFUNS.  Gothic name meaning "battle-eager," of Teutonic origin, froms hild(e) "battle" and funs/fons "eager, fiery."  This is the name from which Spanish Ildefónso came, which yielded the popular Alfónso. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

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

... It is noteworthy to mark how Roman and Gothic names are found side by side in the lists of kings of Asturias.  Roman names like Pelagius, Aurelius, Mauricatus, alternate with Gothic names like Hildefuns [Alfonso], Beremud [Bermudo], and Favila. (The Dark Ages, 476-918, Oman, 1898)
