    Name Meaning

    English (southeastern): from the Middle English personal name Elrich or Eldrich, variants of Alrich and Aldrich, representing any one of three Old English personal names, Æthelrīc, Ælfrīc, and Ealdrīc, formed respectively from æthel- ‘noble’, ælf ‘elf, sprite’, and (e)ald ‘old, honored’ + rīc ‘ruler’ (see Aldridge ). The name might also be a variant of Eldrett, a variant of Aldred , which often occurs in Middle English as Aldret and Eldret, and might have been associated with Eldridge as a result of surname confusion.
