From an Old Norse female personal name, a derivative of the adjective heilagr ‘prosperous, successful’ (from heill ‘hale, hearty, happy’). It was introduced to England before the Conquest, but did not survive long. It has been reintroduced to the English-speaking world in the 20th century from Scandinavia and Germany. See also Olga .
