NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Old High German name “Richer”, composed of two elements: “*rīkijaz” (kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich) plus “*harjaz” (army, army leader, commander, warrior). In turn, the name means “the strength of the army, distinguished in the armed forces, valiant warrior, powerful army-man”. Richerus or Richer of Reims was a monk of Saint-Remi, just outside Reims, and a historian, an important source for the contemporary kingdom of France.
