Etymology of the name AVARDDWY.
Meaning of the baby name AVARDDWY.


AVARDDWY.  In Britain, Mandubrath (the man of black treason) is called Avarddwy Bras.  Welsh arddwy means "management, rule." (A Dictionary of the Welsh Language, Pughe, 1832).  If the prefix Av- is Ap- "son of," then the name means "son of a ruler."

... It is said that Caswallon had murdered Avarddwy's father, and afterwards set out on what the Triads call one of the three unwise armaments, which weakened the force of the country... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

Avarddwy Bras was, no doubt, that Mandubratius, a chief of the Trinobantes, whom Caesar expressly notices as having deserted the Britons and come over to him in Gaul some time before his second invasion, a circumstance that well accords with the narration here given of his treacherous conduct.  The cause, assigned by the Roman historian for this act of Mandubratius, is the murder of his father by Caswallawn or Cassivellaunus... (Letters on Welsh History, Jenkins, 1852)
