About Siric (Sigeric)

Contributions are welcome, but contributions with documented sources are respected.

Sigeric, or less formally, Siric is a name of German, Gothic, and English origins. The name also has French usage.

Meaning & History of the name Sigeric: Derived from Old High German sigu "victory" (a younger form of Gothic sigis, see Sigisbert) combined with rîcja "powerful, strong, mighty." The second element is also closely related to Celtic rîg or rix and Gothic reiks, which all mean "king, ruler."

Siric is listed in the Doomsday Book and is listed as a holder of "Almesteda", the land from which the Olmstede family is named. See: [http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/SearchUI/Details?uri=D7296789]
