Meaning & History

Derived from Old Welsh edyrn "immense; heavy; prodigious, wonderful, marvellous", in the past this name has been (falsely) considered a derivation from Latin aeternus "eternal".
This was the name of the father of the legendary 5th-century war leader Cunedda. It was also the name of a Breton saint, frequently depicted riding a stag.
