Etymology & Historical Origin - Eduardo

Eduardo is primarily the Spanish equivalent of the old English name Edward (the Portuguese typically use Duarte). Edward is one of the oldest English given names of Saxon origin and thus dates back to before the Norman Conquest (1066). It’s one of the few instances in which England provided a new name to continental Europe rather than the other way around. Edward (originally Ēadweard in Old England) comes from the Olde English words “ēad” meaning ‘prosperity, riches’ and “weard” meaning ‘guard’ so the name essentially means ‘Guard of Riches’ or ‘Protector of Wealth.’ The Spanish most certainly have been using the name since the Middle Ages and it’s currently a Top 100 choice in Spain.

Popularity of the Name Eduardo

The name Eduardo has been in use in America since the late 19th century and it’s been making slow and quiet progress ever since. It seems to jump about 100 positions on the U.S. popularity charts every decade until today when it’s lingering closer to a Top 100 spot. Also, Eduardo is not too far behind its English counterpart Edward on the charts. The growing Hispanic population in the United States is clearly driving up the name’s popularity. Leave it to the Spanish. Their versions of English names are jazzed up by the lovely tenor of their romance language. Eduardo is yet another example of this. The name is already a Top 100 choice in Texas, California, Arizona and Nevada – states where there is a high concentration of people with Hispanic or Latino origin.
