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

  

ETHELHARD.  The same as Anglo-Saxon Æthelheard (q.v.), meaning "nobly stern."  (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  The modern English form is Adlard

Ethelhard, the ninth bishop of Winchester.  (M. H. B. 619.)  As his name occurs between that of Cynehard, who was bishop in 754, and that of Egbald, who was bishop in 778, he cannot be identified with Ethelhard, who became archbishop of Canterbury in 793.  William of Malmesbury held the bishop of Winchester, the archbishop, and an abbat Ethelhard, abbat of Malmesbury, to have been the same person, but this is impossible. (A Dictionary of Christian Biography, Smith-Wace, vol. 2, 1880)
