Meaning & Origins

Probably the most successful of all the Old French names of Germanic origin that were introduced to England by the Normans. It is derived from Germanic wil ‘will, desire’ + helm ‘helmet, protection’. The fact that it was borne by the Conqueror himself does not seem to have inhibited its favour with the ‘conquered’ population: in the first century after the Conquest it was the commonest male name of all, and not only among the Normans. In the later Middle Ages it was overtaken by John, but continued to run second to that name until the 20th century, when the picture became more fragmented.
6th in the U.S.
Muslim: from a personal name based on Arabic sa῾d ‘good luck’, ‘good fortune’, ‘success’. Sa῾d is often used to form names in combination with other words, for example Sa῾d All῾h (Sa῾dull῾h) ‘joy of Allah’, an epithet of the Prophet Muhammad. Sa῾d ibn Ab῾ Waqq῾s was one of the ten Companions of the Prophet Muhammad. This name is prevalent in all Muslim countries.
