WHAT DOES BERTHA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Bertha

Bertha is a female Germanic name, from Old High German berhta meaning "bright one". The name occurs as a theonym, surviving as Berchta, a figure in Alpine folklore connected to the Wild Hunt, probably an epithet of *Frijjō in origin. Bertha appears as a Frankish given name from as early as the 6th century. The monothematic Bertha as a given name may however not originate with the theonym but rather as a short form of dithematic given names including the "bright" element. This is notably the case with the mother of Charlemagne, Bertrada (properly berht-rada "bright counsel") called "Bertha Broadfoot". Carolingian use of the name Bertha, as in Bertha, daughter of Charlemagne and Bertha, daughter of Lothair II are in this tradition. Women named Bertha include: ▪ Saint Bertha of Kent (539-c. 612), Queen of Kent ▪ Saint Bertha of Val d'Or (d. c. 690), abbess ▪ Saint Bertha of Artois (mid 7th century - July 4, 725), abbess, daughter of Count Rigobert and Ursana ▪ Bertrada of Laon (also called Bertha with the big feet) (720-783), Frankish queen ▪ Saint Bertha of Bingen (fl. c.
