  • "Where I am, and where practically everyone else is, the only men addressed by this name are ones going by other names but who are homosexuals. This name was much, much more popular as a female name in the years between 1880 and 1930. The men - or boys back then - were named Ethelbert, which means "noble bright" in Old English. There is also the masculine name Ethelred (feminine Ethelreda), which means "noble counsel" in Old English." May. 12, 2008: Report as inappropriate
