Explanation:
Even though Hilde could indeed be German (and is indeed also a German name), I'm 100 % convinced that Hilde ROBBERECHTS is a BELGIAN or DUTCH name; most probably a Belgian name (from Flanders, the Dutch speaking part of Belgium) and NOT a German name.
Of course, Hilde could have moved to Germany and could now be listed in a German telephone directory :-)...
Sorry colleagues

Hallo !

I guess it´s the female first name Hilde, used in Germanic cuntries.
I know it from Norway and Germany.

Explanation:
Hilde, German girl's given name(Spanish: Hilda)
Robberechts, family's name (I don't find correct to find meanings to names, because it leads to controversy and endless interpretations and discussions).
