It is actually "Cader Idris", which is why the school nearby is called "Ysgol Y Gader" or School Of Chair. Idris is a wonderful name, full of Welsh pride.
My school is close to Cader Idris, but not as close as Gader.

It is the name of a Welsh Giant from mythology. The name was given to a mountain range "Cadre Idris'. The story goes if you spend a night on the mountain (Seat - in translation) you will return a madman or a genius. It is also the name of two prophets in the Holy Koran.

In the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, this is not used as a name for a person, but a country.

Not sure whether this actually falls into the category of "useful information", but Idris was the name of a *female* character who played a small but important role in the sixth series of the new Doctor Who. Just thought that should be out there since a), there are a lot of Whovians, b), there are not a lot of Welsh mythology enthusiasts, so c), before naming your boy Idris, you may want to reconsider.
