Origin and popularity of the name EGBERT


Egbert : 1: North German: from the personal name Egbert composed of the ancient Germanic elements agi(l) ‘point edge (of a sword)’ + berht ‘bright famous’.2: English (Devon): from the Middle English personal name Egbert (Old English Ecgbeorht from ecg ‘sword’ + beorht ‘bright’).
