Etymology of the name HRUODERICH.
Meaning of the baby name HRUODERICH.

  

HRUODERICH.  Old German name meaning "famous ruler," from Teutonic hruod "fame, praise" and reich/rich "king, ruler."

    Not behindhand in glory is the northern Horthrekr, or Germanic Hruoderich, famous ruler.  In Gothic Spain, it was indeed Rodrigo, who lost his country to the Moors, but became in his people's minds the centre for pity as much as for blame, and the subject of the beautiful legends that Southey has embodied in the finest of his poems.  And it was Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, "Ruy mi Cid Campeador," in whom ballad lore delighted... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
