Meaning:wealthy protector
The British boy’s name Edmund means “wealthy protector.” It receives its significance from the Old English words ēad, meaning “prosperity,” and mund meaning “protector.” One great example of this name was the Irish Catholic missionary Edmund Rice. After being stuck with personal tragedy and left living alone, Edmund decided to devote his life and a small fortune to helping the disadvantaged. He established a school for poor children in a converted stable in the local area. Rice surely lived up to his name’s meaning, and maybe your little one will too when they grow up.
