NAME OF THE DAY

Aldfrith OLD ENGLISH (ANGLO-SAXON)

This name derives from the Old High German name “Aldfrid”, composed of two elements: the Ancient Germanic “*alða- / *aldaz (Anglo-Saxon: eald)” (old, grown up) plus “*friþuz” (peace, tranquility, friendship). In turn the name means “old peace, ancient peace”. 1) Eadfrith of Lindisfarne († 721), also known as Saint Eadfrith, was Bishop of Lindisfarne, probably from 698 onwards. By the twelfth century it was believed that Eadfrith succeeded Eadberht and nothing in the surviving records contradicts this belief. 2) Aldfrith († 705) was king of Northumbria from 685 until his death. He is described by early writers such as Bede, Alcuin and Stephen of Ripon as a man of great learning.
