Meaning of the baby name ETHELRED.

  

ETHELRED.  Variant form of Anglo-Saxon Æthelred (q.v.), meaning "noble counsel." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

... Although so little that is definite is known about Ethelred, it is clear that he was one of the typical princes of Anglo-Saxon hagiography; that under him the organisation of the Mercian church was perfected, the monastic life devoutly cultivated, and peace fairly well preserved... (A Dictionary of Christian Biography, Literature, &c., Smith-Wace, v.2, 1880)
