Hedwig Meaning
From the Germanic name Hadewig, derived from the Germanic elements hadu "battle, combat" and wig "war". This was the name of a 13th-century German saint, the wife of the Polish duke Henry the Bearded. It was subsequently borne by a 14th-century Polish queen (usually known by her Polish name Jadwiga) who is now also regarded as a saint. Hedwig originates in Germanic languages and means "fighting a battle". It was the name of several saints throughout history and it was also popular among royalty. Hedwig was also the name of Harry Potter"s owl. As a feminine given name it is rather rare and considered old-fashioned in the United States.
