Meaning of the baby name MIDIR.

  

MIDIR.  Celtic legend name of a tricky deity who seems to delight in possessing bodies of various kinds.  Meaning unknown.  Also spelled Midhir.

... Sometimes a disguise was assumed.  Oengus and Midir appeared to Rib and Eochaid in the shape of hospitallers, with a haltered pack-horse, and bade them begone.  Gods also took the appearance of particular mortals, as when Midir appeared to Etain as her lover Ailill, or Manannan as Fiachna to the latter's wife, or as when Pwyll and Arawn exchanged forms... (Celtic mythology, MacCulloch, 1918)
