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


BICOIR.  In 7th century Arthurian legend, the father of Arthur.  Meaning unknown.

... Beccuri is a genitive which appears in Irish Chronicles as Bicoir; the Four Masters have it, under A.D. 620, in the designation of a man whom they call Artur mac Bicair, and Tigernach, according to Stokes, Revue Celtique, xvii, 178, has "ab Artuir filio Bicoir Britone"; and Professor K. Meyer, in Nutt's Voyage of Bran, i, 84, finds the same entry in the Bodleian MS., Rawlinson, B. 488, fo. 9b, 2, where one reads:Mongan mac Fíachna Lurgan ab Artuir filio Bicoir Pretene lapite percussus interit, "Mongan mc Fiachna Lurgan dies struck with a stone by Arthur, son of Bicor of Preten"... the obscurity and unusualness of the name Beccur or Bicor, makes it almost certain that we have a reference in the epitaph to the same man who is mentioned in the chronicle entry just cited... (Y Cymmrodor, Soc. of Cymmrodorion, 1904)
