Meaning & Origins

From an Old English personal name derived from ēad ‘prosperity, riches’ + wine ‘friend’. It was borne by a 7th-century king of Northumbria, who was converted to Christianity by St Paulinus and was killed in battle against pagan forces, a combination of circumstances which led to his being venerated as a martyr. The name occurs occasionally from the mid 16th century, but in modern use it is largely the result of a 19th-century revival.

Americanized spelling of German Risch or of South German (Swiss) Rüsch, a topographic name from Middle High German rusch ‘reeds’, or from a pet form of Rudolf.
