Origin of the name SIEGMINNE.
Etymology of the name SIEGMINNE.
Meaning of the baby name SIEGMINNE.


SIEGMINNE.  Old German name, probably meaning "conquering-memory," from sieg "conquering" and minne "memory."

    34 Perhaps this name has some significance which is now lost.  Brunier, Die germanische Heldensage, p. 65, says "der Name Siegminne hat Anspruch auf Sagenrecht."  If, as seems most probable, the name is an old one, the etymology which connects the name with Sieg, often the first component of names of supernatural women, and with minne (O.H.G. menni), which has similar associations, has much to recommend it.  Instances of the use of Sieg with this connotation are Sigune, Titurel, 105 (cf. Parzival, 435); Sigelint in the Nibelungenlied; Sigrun, Helga kv. Hungdingsbana, II, str. 45; and Sigrdrifa, Helr. Brunhildar, str. 7; cf. E.H. Meyer, Germanische Mythologie, p. 176.  Grimm (Deutsche Mythologie, p. 358) suggests that *siguwip (a hypothetical form) may have been a name for such creatures... (Washington University Studies, Taylor, v.14, 1917).
