NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Old High German name "Beorhthelm", composed of two Old High German and Old Saxon elements: "*berhtaz" (light, bright, clear, shining one) plus "*helmaz" (helmet, protection). In turn the name means "one who brings radiant protection". Brihthelm or Beorhthelm (†957/959) was a medieval Bishop of London. Brihthelm was consecrated between 951 and 953 and he died between 957 and 959.
