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

  

WILLIFRID.  Old German name, meaning "resolute peace," from O.H.G. willa "determined, resolute; will power," and frid "peace."  It is the same as A.S. Wilfrith.  Junius makes it "volens pacem vel affectuum tranquillitas;" i.e. "peace or traquility of affections."  Charnock thinks it is from viel-frid, powerful protector; from frieden, tueri, tutari, protect, preserve.  But he also makes Wilford a corruption of Wilfred, which is probably wrong. (Prænomina, Charnock, 1882).  The prefix Willi- is O.H.G. willa; the same as A.S. willa, and O.N. vili, "resolute; will power."  See Wilford.
