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. [noted -ed]

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