Cedric Diggory made his first appearence in the third Harry Potter book, Prisoner of Azkaban. He was the captain and seeker of the Hufflepuff Quidditch team, and therefore one of Potter's main rivals.

In fact the name Cedric is quite usual in France and I think it's a French name.

I have a family member who came from "Sedretch" Hungary. It was a small town. I could not find it on the web. I did however find some families trying to discuss their LAST name or a name in the family that sounds like Cedoric, or CSDoric. They where wondering about the spelling, and about the pronunciation, mentioning someone of Hungarian origin. I have found Sedritz as the name of a black violinist in the US.

For some reason this name brings a picture of a evil, egoistic and extremely intelligent character of a fantasy book to my mind. But as I happen to love both fantasy books and the bad guys in them, I LOVE this name too. It sounds very noble to me.

Despite my immediate association with Cedric the Entertainer, I still think Cedric is way too old-fashioned a name for me to ever use. For a character. Maybe. Definitely not for a person, though.

I like it. Maybe a little pretentious, but with the everyday name "Rick", it could work.

This is a great name that should be used more. I find it regal and mature, and it sounds like the name of a quiet, kind, poetic type of guy.

I've always heard it SED-rik, but I was watching a movie called Love In A Cold Climate, where one of the characters was called SEED-rik. The actors were British.

I love this name! It's adorable, but it can most definitely suit an adult or an old man. I actually know a boy who's about 10, named Cedric :)

The name Cedric was really popular in France during the 70's and 80's, but hasn't died out completely. I personally think it's adorable even if it is a little dated. It's never been nearly as popular in the US, so I think it would be a great choice for an American boy if you want something unique but not too out there :)

The first person I think of when I hear this name is Cedric Diggory, from Harry Potter. I then attempt to think of anyone else, and I can't. It's a shame this isn't used more often. It's really a great name, and a nice nickname would be "Ced". I don't, however, like "Rick" as a nickname.
