    Name Meaning

    North German: from the personal name Egbert, composed of the ancient Germanic elements agi(l) ‘point, edge (of a sword)’ + berht ‘bright, famous’.

    English (Devon): from the Middle English personal name Egbert (Old English Ecgbeorht, from ecg ‘sword’ + beorht ‘bright’). The present name in Britain usually appears to be of ancient Germanic origin (see 1 above), cognate with the English one, as the medieval name may not have survived.
