Origin of the name ETHELIND.
Etymology of the name ETHELIND.
Meaning of the baby name ETHELIND.

  

ETHELIND.  A variant of Anglo-Saxon Æthelind (q.v.), meaning "noble snake," from Old English el "noble" and lind "serpent, snake." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  But see Charnock's note below.

A female name which appears to be of modern origin.  Miss Yonge compares it with the names Adelinde and Odelind, and translates it "noble snake."  But the name means rather noble and mild; this is confirmed by Meidinger, who under lind, mild, soft, gentle, among several male and female names gives the female name Ethelinde.  Conf. also the Francic name Adelind. (Prænomina, Charnock, 1882)
