Etymology of the name BLYDS.
Meaning of the baby name BLYDS.


BLYDS.  South African Dutch (Afrikaans) name, derived from the vocabulary word blyds, meaning "lightning." (Rhodesia - and After, Gilbert, 1901).  It is the same as German Blitz.

    "Cobbler of Cantebury" (3rd S. vi. 86.)—This little work must have been somewhat popular in Scotland, as I find it was printed in a cheap form at Glasgow, 18mo, 1727.  It is bound up with a poetical History of Fortunatus; A Contest (in verse) between the Gardeners and the Tailors concerning their Antiquity; and a very amusing production entitled "Henry Blyd's (Blyth) Contract in the Carse of Gowrie, near Dondie, in a fine elegant Discourse to his Mistress the Minister's Wife."  On the title is a curious representation of Master Henry in the act of recitation.  The printer of these various chap-books was "James Duncan, in the Salt Market, near Gibson's Wynd, Glasgow."  The little book containing them was many years since purchased from the late Mr. Thomas Thorpe. J.M.  Edinburgh.  (Notes & Queries, v.6, 1864)
