Etymology of the name OTAKAR.
Meaning of the baby name OTAKAR.


OTAKAR.  Bohemian.  The same as Otokar (q.v.), another name for Odoacer (Audvakr, "treasure watcher"), but, according to Yonge, equal to Germanic Ortgar (q.v.), Anglo-Saxon Eadgar (q.v.), meaning "rich spear," from Teutonic od (O.N. audr, A.S. ead, wealth), and gar (spear).  See Yonge's note under Ottokar.
    Otakar Kraus (d. 1980), was a Czech operatic baritone and teacher.  Otakar Kubin (d. 1969), was a renowned Czech painter and sculptor. (Wiki)

... the Otakar of the Hildebrandlied, the oldest fragment, palaeographically speaking, of the Dietrich saga, or indeed of any portion of Teutonic hero-legend, is obviously the Odoacer of history, and the Witig of the saga seems to answer the historical Witigis... (Papers and Transactions: the International Folk-lore Congress, Jacobs-Nutt, 1892).
