Reply to: Interesting Germanic names from the Merovingian dynasty. by Lucille
Chlodoswintha:
Probably two-element name, with the Germanic/Old High German words:
hlut = loud, famous
swinth = strong

Maybe every name here that starts with "Chlod-" has 'hlut' as its first element. See e.g. this article about Ludwig/Chlodwig:
