Etymology of the name BOUDICCA.
Meaning of the baby name BOUDICCA.

  

BOUDICCA.  Variant spelling of Celtic Boudica, meaning "victory."  Also see Bonduca, Buddug, and Boadicea.

    The unscrupulous horde of foreigners that followed Roman armies now began to oppress the Welshmen of the Eastern Counties, and to behave shamefully in many ways.  This roused the anger of the Welsh, and, with Queen Boudicca at their head, they put to death a large number of the invaders.  Suetonius replied with a great slaughter of the Welsh.  Boudicca died A.D. 61.  Roman historians state that she poisoned herself on the battlefield after the final engagement; but Welsh historians, presumably in possession of facts, say that she died a natural death. (Welshmen, Stephens, 1901)
