Edelweiss Origin and Meaning

The name Edelweiss is a girl's name meaning "noble white".
Edelweiss, made famous by the Rogers and Hammerstein song in "The Sound of Music", is a rare female name. In German 'edel' means 'noble' and 'weiss' means 'white'. Edelweiss is the colloquial name for the Leontopodium alpinum, a small white mountain flower sometimes used in herbal folk medicine. In this age, though, Edelweiss might make a better name for a white cat than for a little girl.
