Does anyone know what the female Germanic name Hemma means? It was the name of a ninth century German queen. She's sometimes called Emma, so is Hemma related to Emma / Erma / Irma? In the Submitted Names section of this site Hemma's claimed to be a short form of Wilhelmina, but I'm not sure Wilhelmina was even used as a name in the middle ages.
