In Reply to: Meaning/origin of name "Eckhardt" by Jack Zuccarello of 336

"Eck" means sword in latin, i think,and "hardt" means hard. therefore being swordhard. It is a german name.As I am in a large german family of eckhardts, my family has a certificate with our coat of arms on it in our living room. I will check further on the name, and put more information later for those interested.
