Etymology of the name CARADAWC.
Meaning of the baby name CARADAWC.

  

CARADAWC.  Variant spelling of Welsh Caradwg (q.v.), meaning "beloved."  In Arthurian legend, this is the name of a son of Bran.

    This Prince, so well known under his Latinized name of Caractacus, is chiefly remarkable for his captivity in Rome, which, according to Welsh authorities, was shared by his father Bran, his grandfather Llyr Llediaith, and all his near kinsfolk.  From one of these it seems that he was chosen by his countrymen as their general, or War-king, to repel the incursions of the Romans, and another corroborates this by styling him "One of the three Rulers of choice," having been elected by the voice of the country and the people, although he was not an elder.  There is no doubt of his having stood high in the esteem of his nation; and we are told that "the men of Britain, from the prince to the slave, became his followers in their country's need against the progress of the foe and of destruction.  And wheresoever he went in war, all the men of the Island went in his train, and none desired to remain at home." (The Mabinogion, Guest, 1910).
