The origin listed is incorrect. It comes from the Proto Norse haþu ("battle") and the Old English spelling of the Old Norse víg ("fight/battle"), in turn from the Ancient Germanic wīg (same meaning). Therefore a proper reconstruction would be Haðuwīg or Haþuwīg, depending on if one voices the "th" sound or not.
