English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old English Æþelbeorht, from Proto-West Germanic *Aþalberht, a compound of *aþalaz (noble) + *berhtaz (bright, famous), or from French/Norman Albert, from Latin Albertus, itself from the Germanic name. Regardless of the exact route, it is a doublet of Ethelbert. It became popular in 19th-century England due to Queen Victoria’s consort, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.
