NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from Old High German name “Hardwin”, composed of two elements: “*harduz / *hardu-” (hard, strong, brave, powerful) plus “*-winiz” (friend). In turn the name simply means “brave friend”. Arduin (955–1015) was Margrave of Ivrea and King of Italy (1002–1014). Arduin was born around 955 and named after his maternal grandfather, Arduin Glaber. His father, Dado, Count of Pombia, was a nephew of King Berengar II. Arduin married Bertha, who is often said to be the daughter of Otbert II, Margrave of Milan.
