Meaning of the baby name KAHERDIN.


KAHERDIN.  Arthurian.  A knight, the son of Duke Höel.

    On the third day, at the hour of noon, Tristan and Gorvenal came near a hill where an old chantry stood and close by a hermitage also; and Tristan asked what wasted land that was, and the hermit answered:
    "Lord, it is Breton land which Duke Höel holds, and once it was rich in pasture and ploughland, but Count Riol of Nantes has wasted it.  For you must know that this Count Riol was the Duke's vassal.  And the Duke has a daughter, fair among all King's daughters, and Count Riol would have taken her to wife; but her father refused her to a vassal, and Count Riol would have carried her away by force.  Many men have died in that quarrel."
    And Tristan asked:
    "Can the Duke wage his war?"
    And the hermit answered:
    "Hardly, my lord; yet his last keep of Carhaix holds out still, for the walls are strong, and strong is the heart of the Duke's son Kaherdin, a very good knight and bold; but the enemy surrounds them on every side and starves them.  Very hardly do they hold their castle." (The Romance of Tristan and Iseult, Bedier-Belloc, 1907)
