This name derives from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) “ead / ēad” (prosperity, fortune, riches, wealth) plus “weard” (guard, defend). In turn, the name derives from two Germanic elements: “*audaz” plus “*warduz” (Proto-Germanic: *audwaroþō). It is one of the few Old English (Anglo-Saxon) names to gain popularity in other parts of Europe and beyond, for example, as Eduardo and Duarte in Spain and Portugal, respectively. Edward the Confessor (~1004–1066), son of Æthelred the Unready and Emma of Normandy, was one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England and is usually regarded as the last king of the House of Wessex, ruling from 1042 to 1066. Edward the Martyr (~962–978) was king of the English from 975 until he was murdered in 978. Edward was the eldest son of King Edgar but was not his father’s acknowledged heir.
