Meaning:Secrecy; Hiding; Battle woman
Hilda is a girl's name of Danish origin. For the talented and tenacious woman-to-be, this name means "secrecy," "hiding," and "battle woman." A true testament to baby's inner viking, this name will embrace heritage and spirit alike. Video game fans may recognize this fiery title from Assassins’s Creed. The name itself is one of several names derived from the Norse Hild, a mythological Valkyrie who carried fallen soldiers to Valhalla, a glorious afterlife of sorts. A baby Hilda with a gentler disposition needn’t fear war, however, as her name is also shared with the patron saint of learning, culture and poetry. From the frontline to the arts, this little girl will have no trouble finding her place in the world.
