Meaning of the baby name BOADICEA.

  

BOADICEA.  A Latin form of Celtic Boudica (q.v.), meaning "victory."

... Probably it was either as a victorious omen, or else in honour of her, that the name of Buddug was given to that fierce chieftainess of the Iceni, whose savage vengeance for her wrongs has won for her a very disproportionate fame, as much changed as her name, when we call it Bonduca, or, more usually, Boadicea.  It has not met with much repetition, yet we have heard of a family so patriotic as to contain both Carctacus and Boadicea. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
