Meaning:Noble strength
Exceptional in all nine letters, Etheldreda is a feminine name of Old English origin that holds baby in the highest exaltations. Streaming from the Anglo-Saxon name Æðelþryð, whose elements sing of “noble strength,” Etheldreda is an age-old ode to an honorable character and a choice that champions over all others for your lionhearted little one. If you’re looking to shed some light on baby’s faith, you might take a liking to Etheldreda for its connections to Saint Etheldreda of Ely, England, whose cathedral was constructed in memoriam of her miraculous powers. Worthy in every way, may baby be honored with Etheldreda.
