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.
North German and Dutch: 1. from a reduced form of Frisian Tjadeke, a pet form of any of several compound personal names with the first element thiod- (from Germanic theudo- ‘people’, ‘race’; compare Tabbert 2). 2. alternatively from a short form of a personal name formed with Old High German tac ‘day’ + berht ‘bright’. 3. alternatively, perhaps from tak ‘twig’, ‘sprout’, ‘branch’, Middle Low German tack(e) ‘twig’. This may have been an ironic nickname for a big man, or a nickname for a hard worker.
