Other Origin(s):German
Armgard is a Swiss name for girls. Borrowed from the German name Irmingard, it takes on the meaning “guardian.” Over the years, royalty and saints have borne this name and its variants, including Queen Ermengard of Provence, Queen Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard of the Netherlands, and Saint Irmgard of Süchteln. These personalities have breathed life into the moniker’s meaning, and their tales have spread far and wide, even reaching as far and as near as their neighboring country, Switzerland. Perhaps it’ll have the same effect on your little one, and choosing the name Armgard just might inspire them to greater heights.
