A Frisian name of Germanic origin that has been so strongly abbreviated, that one can no longer tell with certainty what the original form and its meaning is. Some scholars think that it may be a short form of names containing the Germanic element #agin# or #egin# (like Aginhard), thus making it comparable to Eine.
