Reply to: "Ecgheard/ Ecghere" (unknown) and "Seago" (Bavarian) by "Bagpus"
These names are easy to translate.

Ecgheard: Derived from Old English ecg "edge [of a sword]" and heard "hardy"/"brave".
Ecghere: Derived from Old English ecg "edge [of a sword]" and here "army".

Germanic Equivalents:
1. Ecg is the Old English equivalent of the Germanic element eg.
2. Heard is the Old English equivalent of the Germanic element hard.
3. Here is the Old English equivalent of the Germanic element heri.

See Egbert, Eckhard (modern Germanic form of Ecgheard), and Goddard for some examples of names in the BtN database that use these elements.
