Meaning of the baby name WINFRID.

  

WINFRID.  English.  A form of Anglo-Saxon Winfrith (q.v.), meaning "friend of peace." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Also spelled Winfred, and Winefred.

... Willibrord had left, the priests were put to flight, and the land once more under the sway of a heathen king became heathen too.  It was now that Winfrid came.  Winfrid was born near Crediton (c. 680) of a noble English family: after education first in a monastery at Exeter and then at Nutshall (Nutsall, Netley, or Nursling?) he was ordained, and employed in important affairs... (The Cambridge Medieval History, Bury, v.2, 1913)
