Meaning & History
The meaning of the first element of this name is uncertain. It might possibly be derived from Old English eane meaning "lamb" or the Old English verb eanian meaning "to give birth" (usually of animals), which is etymologically related to the modern English verb to yean. All are descended from (or otherwise etymologically related to) the Proto-Germanic verb *aunōną meaning "to lamb, to yean". With that said, the second element of this name is derived from Old English mund meaning "protection".This name was borne by a little-known 8th-century king of Kent.
