Aroldo: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Aroldo

Aroldo

Pronunciation: ah-ROHL-doh (key)

Origin of the name Harold:

Derived from the obsolete Old English Hereweald, a compound name composed of the elements here (army) and weald (ruler, power, control). Alternatively, the Scandinavians introduced the cognate Harald, which is composed of the Germanic elements harja (army) and wald (rule). The name was borne by King Harald I (d. 1040), also known as Harald Harefoot, and Harald II (1022 - 66), who was killed in the Battle of Hastings. The name died out in the early Middle Ages but was reintroduced in the 19th century with other Old English names.
