Origin and Meaning

Norwegian name

1) New combination of NID and HER [1] [2]

2) Taken from the place name Nidaros, an alternative name for Trondheim. The first element of the place name derives from the Old Norse genitive form (niðar) of the river name Nið of uncertain meaning. [1] [2]

Theories include

a) Old Norse niðr = 'down, low' (= river flowing low) [3]
b) Gothic nidwa = 'rust' (= river with rusty water) [3]
c) Latin nitere = 'to shine' (= river with shiny water) [3]
d) Old Norse *niðr? (modern Icelandic niður) = 'murmur, purling' (= river with purling water) [3]
e) Indoeuropean root *nid- = 'to stream, to flow' [3]
