Meaning of the baby name MEDROD.

  

MEDROD.  Arthurian.  Arthur's evil nephew.  Another form of Modred (Mordred), a name said to come from a root meaning "to hit."  Also see Medrawd, and Medrawt.

... Medrod ap Llew ap Cynfarch, called Brenhinol Farchog in Tr. 83, was King Arthur's nephew, and was left to take care of Britain and of his Queen in his absence, while he followed his wars in Gaul; but Medrod hearing of the defeat of Arthur beyond the Alps, dethroned Gwenhwyfar the Queen, and took the government into his own hands.  This occasioned Arthur's return to recover his crown, which brought on the civil war and the great battle called Cad Gamlan, where Medrod was slain, and Arthur received his death's wound... (Celtic Remains, Morris, 1878)
