Meaning of the baby name HROTHGEIR.

  

HROTHGEIR.  Old Norse Hróðgeirr (q.v.), meaning "famous spear."  Also see Hrothgar.

... Sometimes the Danish or Norse names are descriptive of local conditions, but by far the greater number perpetuate the name of individual adventures.  Arnor and Aslákr, Bárekr and Brandi, Eindridi and Garrödr and Grimr, Hálfdán and Hrothgeir and Ketell, Niáll, Saxi and Skapti, Sigvalldi, Thórmódr and Thórsteinn, among a whole "here" of others, have conferred their names on the dwellings or holdings they wrested from their English lords...
