Meanings and history of the name Almeda: | Edit

As a Spanish given name, Almeda is a transfer of the Spanish surname which is derived from Almeida, a habitational name from Arabic al-medina "the city". Its use has been influenced by Alameda, a topographic name from Spanish alameda "poplar grove", and ultimately by the Spanish word álamo "poplar".
In the English-speaking world, Almeda is as much a borrowing of the Spanish name as it used to be the traditional "translated" form of a Welsh saint's name. Which saint exactly would have been Anglicized as Almeda is disputed by modern-day academics: the most popular theory opts for Eluned or Eiliwedd (via its old Latinization Almedha).
Whichever saint it was, she is most likely also the source of the Breton name.
