    Hi, my maiden name is Havrda. Can anyone tell me what it means? Thanks

    No idea :). Havran means "raven", but this probably is just a coincidence.

    I asked on one Czech message board about ethymology and I got this answer:

    Havrda originates from German Eberhard, which means "strong as boar"

    The German spelling is Haberda (more rarely Hawerda). There are many Haberdas in Germany and Austria.
