Meaning:Noble; Bright; Famous
Ethelbert is a brilliant boy’s name of English origin, beaming with honor from the inside out. Ethelbert flows from the Old English name Aethelbert, which comes from the medieval moniker Adalbert, meaning “noble,” “bright,” or “famous.” While Ethelbert became one-of-a-kind in wonder after the Norman conquest, it was in the 1800s that the name would once again make its mark on the world. From politicians to pianists like Ethelbert Callahan and Ethelbert Nevin, Ethelbert was a 19th-century rising star in its own right, and with any luck, your little one might be the same.
