Name Root:
*hildiz *brandaz > Hildebrand / Hiltibrant
This name derives from Old High German “Hildebrand / Hiltibrant,” composed of two elements: “*hildiz” (battle, fight) plus “*brandaz” (fire, torch, flaming sword). Hildebrand is a character from Germanic legend. The name itself is very likely of Langobard origin. He is associated with the cycle of myths about Theodoric the Great, called Dietrich in German, to whom he is a companion. It should be noted that the surname “Hildebrandt” has no direct relationship with the name. Saint Aldebrandus or Aldebrand (Italian: Aldebrando di Fossombrone), also known as Hildebrand, was a Bishop of Fossombrone and a saint.
