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

  

WILFRITH.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "resolute peace," from Old English willa "determined, resolute" also "will power," and frið "peace." (A Compendious Anglo-Saxon and English Dictionary, Bosworth, 1901).  Also spelled Wilfrid, and Wilfred.

    Wil is almost always a commencement.  The Frank queen Bilichilde was, of course, Willihilda, resolute battle.  Our earnest but turbulent Wilfrith, the Yorkshire bishop, hardly deserved to be called resolute peace... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
