LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic 
NAME ROOT:
*GRēWAZ *HILDIZ > GRISELDIS
MEANING:
This name means “battle of dark results”. It derives from the Ancient Germanic (Latinized) name “Griseldis”, composed of two elements: “*grēwaz”, meaning “grey, aged, very old man, sand” plus “*hildiz”, meaning “battle, fight”. This was the name of a patient wife in medieval tales by Boccaccio and Chaucer. Griselda is a “dramma per musica” in three acts that was composed by Antonio Vivaldi. The opera uses a revised version of the 1701 Italian libretto by Apostolo Zeno that was based on Giovanni Boccaccio's The Decameron (X, 10, "The Patient Griselda").
