germanic
*HRōþIZ *SWINþAZ > HROTSVIT / HROTSVITHA

This name derives from the Old High German name “Hrotsvit / Hrotsvitha”, composed of two elements: “*hrōþiz” (praise, fame, glory, renown, honor) plus “*swinþaz” (strong, strength). In turn, the name means “one who has strength glory and fame”. Hrotsvitha of Gandersheim (~935–1002), was a 10th-century German secular canoness, as well as a dramatist and poet who lived and worked at Gandersheim Abbey in modern-day Bad Gandersheim, Lower Saxony, established by the Ottonian dynasty. She wrote in Latin and is considered by some to be the first person since antiquity to compose drama in the Latin West.
