Name Meaning

Americanized form of North German Wriedt .

English: perhaps a nickname for someone with a twisted body from having a crooked neck, back, or legs, from Middle English wrid(e), wrede. This term is recorded only in names and seems to imply an Old English noun wride ‘twist, bend’, derived from Old English wrīthan ‘to twist, to writhe’. Its sense development to ‘the twisted (one)’, and may have been influenced by Middle English wried ‘crooked, bent, twisted’, past participle of wrien ‘to writhe, be crooked (etc.)’. Alternatively, a post-medieval variant of Read .
