De Wilde Name Meaning

Dutch: from Middle Dutch wilde ‘wild’, ‘savage’. In the Low Countries this was used as a descriptive nickname for a man with an unruly temperament, but among the Dutch in New Netherland it was a term for native Americans, equivalent to English savage, French suavage. In many cases, therefore, it implies American Indian ancestry.
