Origin of the name ALW.
Etymology of the name ALW.
Meaning of the baby name ALW.


ALW.  Cymric name of the god of the Alwani (Alauni, Alani), probably meaning "bright, light."  Alaunus is a Latin form.

... The memory of the God Alw is preserved by the Triads under the name of Alawn, and by Nennius (2. 12. Gale) under that of Alaunus, grandfather of Brutus (i.e. Pryd).  In the Triads of the three pillars of the British nation,—Triphost (? Tuisighin) Cenedl Ynys Prydain—the name of the Cymric god Hu Gadarn has been fraudulently substituted for that of Alw.  The signification of the name Alw is still warranted by the Welsh word Alaw (light, music), and the Gaelic Aluin (bright, beautiful)... (Outlines of the Philosophy of Universal History, Bunsen, 1854)
