LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic 
NAME ROOT:
*þEUDō *RīKIJAZ > ÞIUDREIKS > THEODORICH
MEANING:
This name derives from Old High German name “Theodorich”, composed of two elements: “*þeudō” (a people, a nation) plus “*rīkijaz” (kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich), meaning “a person that is distinguished and is full of strength”. Latin: Theodericus; Greek: Theuderikhos (Θευδέριχος); Old English: Þēodrīc; Old Norse: Þjōðrēkr, Þīðrēkr. Theoderic the Great was king of the Ostrogoths, ruler of Italy, regent of the Visigoths, and a viceroy of the Eastern Roman Empire. His Gothic name Þiudareiks translates into "people-king" or "ruler of the people". A son of King Theodemir, an Amali nobleman, Theoderic was born in Pannonia, after his people had defeated the Huns at the Battle of Nedao. Growing up as a hostage in Constantinople, Theoderic received a privileged education and succeeded his father as leader of the Pannonian Ostrogoths in 471 AD.
