Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:Awe, fear; Edge, sharpness (of a weapon)
Baby will be a fearless warrior with the name Eigil. This Norse masculine moniker has its roots in two Ancient Germanic terms meaning “awe” or “fear” and “edge, sharpness (of a weapon).” Eigil is a variation of Egill, who was an Icelandic Viking and a great poet. His story was documented in Egils saga, which portrayed him as headstrong and a rebel against authority, yet a loyal friend. Encompassing those characteristics proudly, baby Eigil will be a force to be reckoned with.
