Meaning & History

Derived from the Germanic element bald "brave, bold" (commonly reduced to bad or baud when Latinized) or possibly Celto-Germanic badu "battle", combined with gisel "hostage" or "pledge" (ge- "co-" + the root of "sell" in the sense of "give"—thus something or someone given in exchange).
