As a German name it is composed of the two elements
WALH (welsh) and BERATH (famous)
The term "welsh" in this case may refer to a person of Celtic origin, Gaulic or Roman. From a German point of view "welsch" usually means "Italian" or "French" (from southern France), with a dark tan.
The name WALHBERHT also appears as: Walhberet, Walahbreth, Waleberd, Walaperht, Walabrech(t), Walibert, Valipert, Walipert, Gualipert, Gualepert, Walbert, Valbert etc. In England there used to be Vealhbeorht.
Ceasar called those Celts "volcae".
