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

  

ULPHILAS.  A Latinized form of Gothic Vulfila (q.v.), meaning "wolf." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

... In the year 318 the Gothic bishop and translator of Scripture, Ulphilas, was born.  He succeeded Theophilus as bishop of the Goths in 348, when he subscribed a confession rejecting the orthodox creed of Nicæa; through him it is said that the Goths in general adopted Arianism; it may be, however, more correct to consider that Arianism (or Semi-Arianism) had already spread amongst the Greeks and Latins.  (A Dictionary of the Bible, Smith, 1893)
