Comments for KUNIBERT:

The first element is actually Gothic 'kuni' ('chunni' in Old High German) "family, descent, stock, tribe." It is common that people confuse it with 'cĂ´nja' ('kuoni' in Old High German) "brave" - but the correct element here really is 'kuni', not 'kuoni.' [noted -ed]

The meaning given for Kunibert does not make sense in this entry. I mean: the entry says that the name means "brave and bright", but it should be "bright family". After all, the entry states that the name is derived from /kuni/ "clan, family" and /beraht/ "bright". None of those elements support the "brave" part of the meaning. Besides, "brave" in ancient Germanic is /bald/, so a Germanic given name meaning "brave and bright" would be something along the lines of Baldbert, instead of Kunibert.
