NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Old High German name “Egilbald”, composed of two Ancient Germanic elements: “*agi- / *agaz” (awe, terror, fear, dread) or “*agi,ō” (edge, corner, sharpness “of a weapon”, sword) plus “*balðraz” (power, strength, brave one, bold, able-bodied). In turn the name means “one who scares with his strength, one who possesses powerful weapons”. Egilbald (Egilbold) († 900) was a Bishop of Utrecht from 899 to 900.
