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


CAEDMON.  Anglo-Saxon form of the Latinized Old Celtic name Catumanus (q.v.), meaning "horn of battle; a warrior."  This was the name of a poet-monk whose story is told in History of the English Church, by Beda. (Exodus and Daniel: two Old English Poems, Blackburn, 1907).

    The name Cædmon (in the MSS. of the Old English version of Bæda written Cedmon, Ceadmann) is not explicable by means of Old English; the statement that it means "boatman" is founded on the corrupt gloss liburnam, ced, where ced is an editorial misreading for ceol.  It is most probably the British Cadman, intermediate between the Old Celtic Catumanus and the modern Welsh Cadfan... (Encyclopaedia Britannica, Chisholm, v.4, 1910)
