Meaning of the baby name AMALASUINTHA.

  

AMALASUINTHA.  Variant of Spanish Gothic Amalaswintha (q.v.), meaning "work strength." 

... On the death of Theoderic the Great, or, as he is called in song and legend, "Dietrich of Bern," the sceptre which he had borne with such grace and vigour passed into the hands of an infant and a woman.  The young and beautiful Amalasuintha, daughter of Theoderic by the sister of Clovis, and widow of Eutharic, exercised the royal authority in the name of her son Athalaric; and when the latter, prematurely exhausted by vicious habits, followed his mighty grandfather to the grave in A.D. 532, she made Theodatus, son of Amalafrida, the sister of Theoderic, her associate in the royal power... (The Franks, from Their First Appearance in History to the Death of King Pepin, Perry, 1857)
