NAME OF THE DAY
This name is linked to three different roots: 1) From the Ancient Germanic "*ermunaz", meaning "strong, whole, tall, exalted, whole, great, powerful" (making it a relative of Ermenrich). 2) From the Gothic "amal / amals", meaning "work, brave, diligent, the Amali" (making it a relative of Amalric). 3) From the Old High German "*haimaz", meaning "home, house" (making it a relative of Henry). The second element is "-ric", from the Ancient Germanic "*rīkijaz", meaning "kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich ". It is probable that one of the Germanic forms was merged into a single name and later generated its variants.
