[ syll. er-min-tru-de, erm-intr-ude ] The baby girl name Ermintrude is of Germanic origin, and it is predominantly used in the English, French, and German languages. The name is of the meaning 'whole strength; wholly beloved'. An older form of Ermintrude is Ermentrudis (Germanic). The name is derived from the first element ermen (meaning 'whole, immense, universal') and the second element trud ('strength, power') or traut. It was borne by a 9th-century empress of France. The name was first introduced to English speakers by the Normans in the 11th century. It dropped off from use in the medieval period and saw occasional revivals in the 18th and 19th centuries.
In addition, Ermintrude is a form of the English and German Erma.
