Walpurgis is a feminine name derived from the Old High German Waldeburg, an ancient appellation bearing the eminent meaning “powerful protector.” Most famously known for Saint Walpurgis Night, Christian families often choose this rare name to honor the missionary who battled illness and witchcraft in 8th-century Germany. Her feast day is celebrated on the eve of April 30th and the morning of May 1st, making it a fitting title should baby arrive during this time. No matter the month baby makes their grand entrance, Walpurgis will remind your little one of how mighty they truly are.
