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


CYNYR.  Arthurian.  The father of sir Kai.  A Welsh form of Irish Conaire (q.v.), meaning "hound of slaughter."  Also spelled Kyner.

... Cynyr was the son of Gwyndeg ab Seithenin, and the husband of Anna, daughter of Gwrthefyr Fendigaid (Vortimer).  He was the father, besides Non, of Guistlianus or Gwestlan, a pre-Davidian bishop in Menevia, Sadwrn Hen, Gwen, the mother of Cybi, and Banhadlen, the mother of Ailbe.  Caer Gawch is therein identified with Pebidiog, but it is rather strange that no trace of either Caer Gawch or Cynyr has been found in Dewisland.  The name Cynyr is equated with the Irish Conaire; and the lesser Dyfed of those days was in all probability strongly Goidelic, for it was not ruled over by the Cuneddan family... (The Lives of the British Saints, Baring-Gould, v.2, 1908)
