Meaning of the baby name WIGMUND.

  

WIGMUND.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "war protection," from Old English wig "strife, war," and mund "hand; protection." (The Romance of Names, Weekley, 1914; A Compendious Anglo-Saxon and English Dictionary, Bosworth, 1901)

"Four persons, not related, and of different countries, met by chance in a forest, and swore to be brethren in arms.  Their names were Athelstan, Ethelward, Wigmund, and Alric.  The first, who was of royal blood, afterwards became king:  as soon as he was seated on the throne, he sent for his brothers in arms, and made Wigmund, earl of Dover; on Ethelward he conferred the earldom of Stane, with the hand of his sister Edyre; while to Alric, the archbishopric of Canterbury, then falling vacant, was given:  soon after, Wigmund accused Athelward and his wife of plotting against the life of Athelstan, but they cleared themselves by the fiery ordeal, and Edyre gave birth to a son, whom they called Edemund." (Church of England Quarterly, vol.41, 1857)
