Meaning of the baby name EOCHAID.

  

EOCHAID.  A variant of Irish Eochaidh (q.v.), meaning "a horseman or knight."

Several Eochaids were kings of Scotland, but they are grievously confused by Latinity.  Another Eochaid has, by the capricious fancy of Scotland, been transmitted to us as Achaius; and some appear as Eugenius! (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

EOCHAIDH, pronounced Eochy or Eohy, an old Irish name signifying a horseman or knight; from each or eoch, a steed.  According to the Annals of Ireland it has been Anglicized Achy, and Latinised Eochadius, Achadius, and Achaius. (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882)
