Meaning & History
This name is often a short form of ARNOUD (and other names containing the Germanic element aran or arn meaning "eagle", such as AREND) and EDUARD. However, it can also be a short form of ADRIAAN and ADRIANUS, as it is in the case of the Dutch politician and minister Ard van der Steur (b. 1969) and the Dutch former speed skater Ard Schenk (b. 1944). Last but not least, in some cases, this name can also be a variant spelling of ART.
