Etymology of the name UTHER.
Meaning of the baby name UTHER.


UTHER.  Arthurian.  The youngest son of King Constantine, and father of king Arthur.  From the Welsh word uthr, meaning "awful, horrible."

UTHER, UTHYR.  A Welsh name derived from uthr, signifying awful, wonderful, astonishing, terrific, horrible.

Y cythraul acw uthr-was
[The fiend yonder a horrid sprite.]óW. Lleyn.

(Prænomina, Charnock, 1882).

Uther, in British myth, the reputed father of King Arthur, is an imaginary King of Britain.  He seems to have been invented by Geoffrey of Monmouth (died 1154) in his fanciful Chronichon sive Historia Britonum, but passed into the cycle of Arthurian romances and is accepted as a historical character by Milton in his over-credulous History of Britain to the Conquest (1670).  See D. W. Nash's preface to reprint of Merlin or the Early History of King Arthur.  Noticed in Saturday Review, June 23, 1866. (Heroes and Heroines of Fiction, Walsh, 1914)
