Comments for the name Eric

Comments for ERIC:

This name can also (or more likely) find its origin in the Germanic/Norse word 'Ehre' which translates in English to 'Honor.' Combined with the Germanic/Norse word for king, 'Rik' (the origin of the subsequent German word 'Reich), 'Eric' means 'Honorable King.' This is a more probable origin/meaning, as the Germanic word for 'Ever' is not 'Ei, ' but 'Immer.'

Eric means "kingly", so I think this name really is connected to the word "king".
