Vætildr f Ancient Scandinavian, Algonquin, Beothuk
Probably an Old Norse form of an unknown Algonquin or Beothuk name, though the second element coincides with Old Norse hildr "battle". (The Beothuk people, now extinct, were a Native American tribe who originally inhabited Newfoundland, Canada.) This was the name of an Aboriginal woman briefly mentioned in the Viking saga 'Saga of Erik the Red'.
