Arnold Genealogy & History

Arnold is a German and English name, derived from the compound "arn", meaning "eagle", and "wald", meaning "rule". Only two animals were used in German heraldry: the eagle, representing the Holy Roman Empire, and the lion, representing feudal lords. The distinguished name "eagle-ruler" spread rapidly throughout northern-Europe during the Dark Ages, resulting in various spellings in Arnold genealogy, including Ernaldi in 1086 in England and Arnoldt in Germany in 1282. The most infamous in Arnold family history is American Revolution general and traitor Benedict Arnold (1741-1801). Some suggest the name ironically derives from "ehre" meaning honor and "hold" meaning faithful.
