The name is composed of two elements: “*rēdaz” (help, advise, counsel, decision) plus “*guntho / *gunþiz” (battle, fight, act of killing, blow, to strike). The name means “the one who decides to fight”. Radegund was a 6th-century Frankish princess, who founded the monastery of the Holy Cross at Poitiers. Canonized in the 9th century, she is the patron saint of several English churches and of Jesus College, Cambridge.
