HERMANGILD.  Unisex. The same as Gothic Ermenigeld (q.v.), meaning "public pledge."  Also spelled Hermengild.  Also see Eormengild. (History of Christian Names, Yonge)

...Of course, the young Baron Rudolf, whose achievements had now earned for him a wide-spread celebrity, was married to the Lady Hermangild, and the marriage festivities, and bounteous doles and charities to the poor on the occasion were only to be equaled by the munificence and magnificence of our own Fifth Avenue in the like case.—"The Baron of Raubersold." (Frank Leslie's Pleasant Hours, v.1, 1867)

... Causes of every kind were decided by the bishops, who usurped absolute authority, and even disposed of the crown.  Leovigild was a professor of Arianism, and put to death his own son Hermangild, because he had become a Catholic.  Jurgundis, the wife of Hermangild, was the daughter of the famous Brunehilda; she was pious and gentle, and zealously devoted to Catholicism, and after the death of her husband attempted to escape to France, but fell into the hands of the Greeks, and died in Africa. (Historić Sententić, London, 1857).
