"wealthy ruler"

Edric Origin and Meaning

The name Edric is a boy's name of English origin meaning "wealthy ruler".

Formerly in style limbo, Edric has recently started to see more use by parents. It could be because it sounds medieval yet accessible - which George R. R. Martin took advantage of for several characters - or because it's an offbeat alternative to the more popular Ed-names.
