brynhildr

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old norse 
NAME ROOT:
*BRUNJǭ *HILDIZ > BRüNHILD (BRYNJA HILDR > BRYNHILDR)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old Norse name “Brynhildr”, composed of two Germanic elements: “*brunjǭ” (breastplate, neck protection of medieval armor equipment, chest part of an armor, coat of mail) plus “*hildiz” (battle, fight). The name means “protected by the shield”. Brynhildr, sometimes spelled Brunhild, Brünnhilde, Brynhild, is a shieldmaiden and a valkyrie in Norse mythology, where she appears as the main character in the Völsunga saga and some Eddic poems treating the same events. Under the name Brünnhilde she appears in the Nibelungenlied and therefore also in Richard Wagner's "opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen". She may be inspired by the Visigothic princess Brunhilda of Austrasia. The history of Brynhildr includes fratricide, a long battle between brothers, and dealings with the Huns.
