Meaning of the baby name THURISMUND.


THURISMUND.  Gothic Teutonic name meaning "Thor's protection," from Gothic Thoris-, Thor, god of thunder, Teutonic mund "protection."  Also spelled Thorismund.  See Yonge's note under Thurismod.

    Rosamunda cast down her eyes.
    "My father's sire," she said, "needs not that I should tell him how many and how strange are the chances of warfare."
    "Nay, child," responded the aged chieftain, mournfully shaking his long beard, "for have I not this day the death of thy brave uncle, my dear son Thurismund?  Well and valiantly he fought, a true prince of the Gothic race that knows not fear of foe, but neither did his daring nor the might of Odin avail to save us from defeat.  We are fallen!—fallen!" (Rosamunda the Princess, and Other Tales, by Anna Bonus Kingsford, 1875).
