Possibly from the Old English masculine name Hildræd, which was composed of the elements hild "battle" and ræd "counsel". This name was revived in the late 19th century, probably because of its similarity to the popular names Hilda and Mildred. Hildred originates in Old English language and means "war advisor". Some sources suggest that it can also be used as a masculine given name. In the English-speaking countries it has been used since the 19th century but has never become overly popular.
