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

  

LLYR.  Welsh form of Irish Lir (q.v.), English Lear (q.v.), meaning "sea."  

    Wales shows in the Isle of Anglesea a cromlech, called the tomb of Bronwen, daughter of King Llyr or Leirus.  The tomb was opened in 1813, and an ancient urn, once probably containing ashes, was found there.  It seems that a somewhat more substantial Llyr lived about the time of the Roman conquest, and was the father of Bronwen, who married the king of Ireland, was ill-treated by him, and received a box on the ear, which was one of the three fatal insults of the Isle of Britain... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
