Meaning of the baby name ETHELWULF.

  

ETHELWULF.  Variant form of Anglo-Saxon Æthelwulf (q.v.), meaning "noble wolf." (The Teutonic Name-System, Ferguson, 1864).

... in the Chronicle Ælfréd Æthelwulfing denotes Alfred, the son of Ethelwulf, and Pending signifies the son of Penda.  In the translation of St. Luke's Gospel, Seth Adaming is Seth, the son of Adam...
    The syllable ing is sometimes merely the equivalent of the genitive or possessive, which is also the generative case.  Thus Æthelwulfinglond is equivalent to Æthelwulfeslond, the "land of Ethelwulf";... (Names and Their Histories, Taylor, 1896).
