Hylda is a girl’s name of Old German origin. It’s a variant of Hilda, which derives from the word hild, meaning “battle.” A suitably fierce name for your little warrior! In Old Norse myth, Hildr was one of the valkyries who guided the souls of the dead from the battlefield to Valhalla. Hilda was also the name of a seventh-century saint from Northumbria, England. Less common than Hilda, Hylda’s more unusual spelling adds an edge to the name that will help baby stand out from the crowd.
