Meaning of the baby name YSPADADDEN.


YSPADADDEN.  Arthurian.  Yspadadden Penkawr, the giant father of Olwen, in the Mabinogi Kilhwch and Olwen.  From the Welsh word yspaddaden, meaning "hawthorn." (Geiriadur Cymraeg a Saesneg, Edwards, 1905). 

... "Whose are the sheep that thou doest keep, and to whom does yonder castle belong?"  "Stupid are ye, truly!  Through the whole world is it known that this is the castle of Yspadadden Penkawr."  "And who art thou?"  "I am called Custennin the son of Dyfnedig, and my brother Yspaddaden Penkawr oppressed me because of my possessions.  And ye also, who are ye?"  "We are an embassy from Arthur, come to seek Olwen the daughter of Yspaddaden Penkawr."  "Oh men! the mercy of Heaven be upon you, do not that for all the world.  None who ever came hither on this quest has returned alive." (Mabinogion, Guest, 1910)
