Medieval French form of Alfried, which is a short form of Adalfried and thus not to be confused with Alfred. Also compare Godefroy and Geoffroy.This name is sometimes listed as a medieval French form of the Germanic name Ansfried, but that should technically be incorrect, as names starting with Ans- typically do not become Au- in medieval French. Only names that start with Al- do, such as Albert (which becomes Aubert) and Albin (which becomes Aubin). Also compare Avery.
