What does the name "Khalid" mean?

My first name is Khalid. In Arabic, this is خالد. It was originally spelled Khaled with an "e", to  be more in line with the Egyptian pronounciation, but at some point I decided that Khalid with an "i" is closer to the classical version. The problem is that in English, this is taken to be a long "i", as in "-leed". It is more  like "lid".

Khalid is a pre-Islamic Arabic name meaning "immortal". One of the earliest famous persons called Khalid is Khalid Ibn Al-Walid, a n Arab general whose conquests against the two most powerful empires of the time (Byzantine and Sassanian) brought him everlasting fame. He is one of a few military commanders who never knew defeat in battle.




Halid Ibn-ül Velid

Halid Ibn-ül Velid, one the biggest muslim army leader, won a war against tens of thousands Byzantine soldiers with less than 5000 muslim soldiers.

Died in his bed with his sword in his hand.

Every country must have such a hero

I know you have spelling problems in English for your name, i think English speakers prefer to adapt the spelling in their language which doesn't feel fair to me. I my self am trying to spell correctly. Regarding the hero, i admire that, he gain his own immortality in battles and wars, we have few the same in our country.
