People often regard the meaning of this name ('Boar warrior') as vulgar, but they fail to consider what the boar meant and symbolised for the Anglo-Saxons.

The boar was one of their most sacred animals; it was held in reverence as a creature of great strength/power and a talisman of divine protection in battle. It has been linked to the god Ingui-Frea.
