THORISMUND.  Gothic Teutonic name meaning "Thor's protection," from Gothic Thoris-, Thor, god of thunder, Teutonic mund "protection."  See Yonge's note under Thurismod. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... Thorismund did not long enjoy his kingdom.  He quarrelled with Aetius about the division of the Hunnish spoils, and began to levy war upon the Romans; against the wish of the more powerful party among his subjects, who desired to remain in friendship with the empire.  A rebellion broke out, and in the year 453 Thorismund was murdered by two of his brothers, one of whom, Theoderic II., succeeded him in his kingdom, and reigned thirteen years. (The Story of the Goths, Bradley, 1891)
