This name derives from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) “Ælfræd,” composed of two elements: “ælf” (elf) and “ræd” (counsel). The name means “elf counsel.” Alfred the Great was King of Wessex from 871 to 899. Alfred successfully defended his kingdom against the Viking attempt at conquest, and by the time of his death, had become the dominant ruler in England. Saint Altfrid was Benedictine bishop and devotee of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Altfrid was the headmaster of the school at Corvey Abbey in Saxony. In 851, he has appointed the bishop of Hildesheim and founded Essen Abbey. The entire Frankish empire revered him for his sanctity and his devotion to Mary. He was also a close royal adviser to the East Frankish king Louis the German.
