Meaning of the baby name LLEW.

  

LLEW.  Arthurian.  The father of sir Gwalchmai.  Welsh name meaning "lion" and "light."  His English name is Lot.

    We find Llew, lion, naming Lleurwg ab Coel ab Cyllyn, also called Llewfer Mawr, the great light, and correctly translated by the Latin Lucius, the king who is said to have sent messengers to Rome to bring home Christianity, though some think Lucius a mere figment of Roman writers accepted by the bards.
    Llew is the name given in Welsh genealogies to the king of the Orkneys, who married King Arthur's sister, and was the father of Gwalchmai. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
