Meaning:Strong spear, spear of strength
Trudi is a girl’s name of German origin, meaning “strong spear.” A darling diminutive of the girl’s name Gertrude, whose Old German elements ger and drud effortlessly merge and meld to make “spear of strength,” Trudi might be the name that ignites a knight in shining armor in us all. And although Gertrude grew to fortune and fame in the 15th century, the name Trudi has proven itself prosperous even in the test of time. Borne by 20th-century actresses and artists like Trudi Ames, who starred in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1965 production of Cinderella, and Surinamese poet Trudi Guda, Trudi is a riveting choice for your little treasure.
