I don't think there is an English equivalent. I just found the following:

Ermenegildo

English translation/equivalent: Ermenegildo

Origin: Derived from a Germanic name of Gothic tradition, composed from ermin- or irmin "great," and gildi "that has value and consistency," refering originally to the celebration of the sacraments.

Name Day/Onomastico: April 14—in honor of St. Ermenegildo, Visigoth king who converted to Catholicism and was executed for his actions in 585.

The name Ermenegildo is a masculine name often shortened in Gildo (pronunced Jeel-doh) although Gildo is a first name too. A bit old fashion names and mainly used in Northern Italy. There is also a feminine version for both names: Ermenegilda and Gilda.
