EÁDGÁR.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "happy spear," or "rich spear," from Old English ead "happy, rich," and gár " arrow, spear, dart, javelin, missile." (A Dictionary of the Anglo-Saxon Language, Bosworth, 1838).  Cf. Eadgard.

Edgar.  Eadgar, a well-known and royal personal name among the A.-Saxons.  There are probably several distinct families of this designation.  The Scottish family deduce themselves from Gospatrick, earl of Northumberland, temp. William I., who was a kinsman of Eàdgar Atheling, and a descendant of king Eàdgar, great grandson of Alfred the Great.  The Edgars of Suffolk claim from a John Edgar of Dunwich, living in 1237.(Patronymica Britannica, Lower, 1860)
