Original form in MECCG: Baduila
Baduila is the latinized form of an ostrogothic male name, attributed to the historical King Baduila as his birthname. The etymology is most likely *badwō, "Battle", and -ila, a common gothic ending indicating an affectionate form. So Baduila would be "the little Battler" or "Little Fighter". The corresponding Anglo-Saxon form would be "Beadula".
