æLF FLæD > æþELFLÆD

This name derives from Old English (Anglo-Saxon) name “Æþelflæd”, composed of two elements: “ælf” (elf) or “æðel“ (noble) plus “flæd” (beauty, purity). Saint Ælfflæd (654–714) was the daughter of King Oswiu of Northumbria and Eanflæd. She was abbess of Whitby Abbey from the death of her kinswoman Hilda in 680, first jointly with her mother, then alone.
