NAME ROOT:
*-WINIZ *FRIþUZ > WINE FRIð > WINFRIÐ
MEANING:
This name means friend of peace, the one who brings peace. The name derives from Old English (Anglo-Saxon) root ”wine frið”, which in turn derives from Old High German name “Winfried”, composed of two Ancient Germanic elements: “*-winiz” (friend) plus “*friþuz” (peace, tranquility, friendship). Saint Winifred or Saint Winefride was a 7th-century Welsh Christian woman, around whom many historical legends have formed. A healing spring at the traditional site of her death is now a shrine and pilgrimage site called St Winefride's Well in Holywell, Flintshire, Wales known as the Lourdes of Wales.
