Etymology of the name TEUTA.
Meaning of the baby name TEUTA.

  

TEUTA.  Illyrian.  A name that is probably identical to the Gaulish masculine name Teutas (q.v.), a form of Greco-Egyptian Thoth, meaning "active principle; soul of the world; essence of all things."  The Albanian form is Tefta.

... Their king Agron was so elated with the victory which his people had gained over an enemy so formidable as the Ætolians, that he abandoned himself to an excess of intemperance, which soon put an end to his life.  He was succeeded by his queen Teuta, who was led—whether by evil counsellors or by her own ignorance and vanity—to believe that she might safely enrich herself and her subjects with the spoil of every coast accessible to the Illyrian boats.  Accordingly, she not only granted an unlimited license of plunder to her privateers, but sent out an armament, with instructions to her officers to treat every coast as a enemy's country... (The History of Greece, Thirlwall, v.2, 1860)
