English and German: from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements wil ‘will’, ‘desire’ + berht ‘bright’, ‘famous’. The native English form, Wilbeorht, is attested before the Conquest, but was greatly reinforced in the early Middle Ages by the introduction of the Continental cognate by the Normans.
