Etymology of the name MILDRED.
Meaning of the baby name MILDRED.

  

MILDRED.  Modern English form of Anglo-Saxon Mildthryth (q.v.), meaning "mild threatener," i.e. one who is gently or mildly strict.  Also spelled Mildreda and Mildrid. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Usage:  America, England, Holland, Ireland.
    Mildred Muis, a former Dutch medley and freestyle swimmer.  Mildred Gale (d. 1701), was the paternal grandmother of George Washington.  Mildred Archer (d. 2005), was an English art historian.  Mildred Anne Butler (d. 1941), was an Irish artist. (Wiki)

    Merowald, King of Mercia, had three daughters and one son, and all the daughters' names began with mild, namely, Milburga or Mildburh, Mildgyth or Mildgithe, and Mildred or Mildthryth, whilst he called his son Mervin or Mervyn, signifying "sea-hill"a Keltic name.  Whether influenced and inspired by their names or not, I cannot say; but all King Merowald's or Merwald's, daughters became nuns, and two of them were canonised, Milburg and Mildred... (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905)
