Name Meaning

Scottish, English, and French: from the Middle English personal name Edmund (Old English Ēadmund), composed of the elements ēad ‘prosperity’, ‘fortune’ + mund ‘protection’. In medieval England and France the name was often bestowed in honor of the East Anglian King St. Edmund the Martyr (died 869 ), who was killed by pagan Danish invaders, and about whom many legends grew up.
