Meaning of the baby name MILDBURH.

  

MILDBURH.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "mild pledge," from Old English milde "gentle, mild" and burh "pledge."

... Mild, or mild, is exclusively Saxon; nay, almost exclusively Mercian, for it only occurs in one family; that of King Merowald, who named his three daughters Mildgyth, Mildburh, and Mildthryth.  All became nuns, the two latter abbesses, one in Shropshire, the other in the isle of Thanet, and they were canonized as Milburga and Mildreda. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
