Jump to: navigation, search

There are many personal names derived from the Germanic roots hlod ("renown", "fame", "loud") and wig ("combat", "war"), giving "combat renowned", Latinized into Chlodovicus. Some historical figures have had some of these names. Or the first element might be a continental version of Anglo-Saxon hlōð = "troop": Hlōðwīg = "troop-war", or (as a bahuvrihi) "he who goes to war with or leading a troop". (The element hlod is found also in Lothar)
