WĪG *HARDUZ / *HARDU- > WIGHARD / WIGHART

This name derives from the Old High German name “Wighard / Wighart”, composed of two Ancient Germanic elements: “wīg” (fight, battle, fighter, able to fight) plus “*harduz / *hardu-” (hard, strong, brave, valiant, powerful). The name means “the strong fighter, one who fights epic battles”. Wighard / Wigheard († 664/667) was a medieval Archbishop-elect of Canterbury. What little is known about him comes from 8th-century writer Bede, but inconsistencies between various works have led to confusion about the exact circumstances of Wighard's election and whether he was ever confirmed in that office.
