BADWILA.  Gothic name, possibly meaning "spearman," from badwa (Lithuanian badau), "I pierce." 

... This was the name of the last king of the Ostrogoths, the hero who succumbed to the eunuch Narses.  On coins his name was Badwila, but on some documents his signature is Tautila. (Guthones, Rackus, 1929).
