Meaning & History
Derived from Old High German sigu "victory" (a younger form of Gothic sigis, see Sigisbert) combined with rîcja "powerful, strong, mighty." The second element is also closely related to Celtic rîg or rix and Gothic reiks, which all mean "king, ruler." Sigeric was the name of a 5th-century king of the Visigoths.
