Comments for the name Aneirin


Comments for ANEIRIN:

This is also spelt 'Aneurin', the 'eu' sounding as 'ai' in most Indo-European languages. Traditionally it means blonde or golden haired. The origin is not 'Neirin'. That is the shortened version, the affectionate being simply 'Ni'.

Aneirin was a 7th century Welsh bard, serving the kings of the Old North (what is now modern lower Scotland). He wrote the epic Welsh poem 'Y Gododdin'.

I've only seen it spelt Aneurin meaning "honour". Mostly limited to Wales.
