Etymology of the name EIGYR.
Meaning of the baby name EIGYR.


EIGYR.  Arthurian.  The mother of king Arthur.  From Welsh eigyr, meaning "the virgin." (Britannia After the Romans, Herbert, v.2, 1841)

... there was one remarkable blunder made by the chroniclers of the middle ages, which was the attributing to this prince the parentage of the mythological Arthur; that is, they make him the son of Uthyr Bendragon by Eigyr; who, aided by the skill of Merddin, was introduced to her in the shape of her husband; and they also make Uthyr to reign as the 86th king of Britain, between Ambrosius and Arthur, yet the triads are silent about such a name altogether.  But this Uthyr Bendragon, or Wonder the Supreme Leader, and Eigyr, or Generating Power, were the parents of the mythological Arthur; and not of the prince of that name, whose origin has been already noticed, and which has nothing of fable in it. (The Cambridge Biography, Pughe, 1803)
