What is the yiddish or German language equivalent of the name Edward?
There is no Yiddish equivalent, and the German equivalent is "Edward," the same as in English. Edward means "rich guard", derived from the Old English elements ead "wealth, fortune" and weard "guard". This was the name of several Anglo-Saxon kings, the last being Saint Edward the Confessor shortly before the Norman conquest in the 11th century.
