Cedric Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Masculine; USAGE: English; PRONOUNCED: SED-rik. The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. According to some interpretations it is derived from Anglo-Saxon, while others may be connected to “Caratacos”, a Breton name derived from the Celtic “car”, which means “love”. This name was misread for “Cerdic”, the name of a Saxon king, anglicized from Welsh “caredig” (beloved), cited by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle as the founder of the kingdom of Wessex and ancestor of all its subsequent kings. — Invented by Sir Walter Scott for a character in his novel ‘Ivanhoe’ (1819). Apparently, he based it on the actual name Cerdic, the name of the semi-legendary founder of the kingdom of Wessex in the 6th century. The meaning of Cerdic is uncertain, but it does not appear to be Old English in origin. It could be connected to the Brythonic name CARATACOS. The name was also used by Frances Hodgson Burnett for the main character in her novel ‘Little Lord Fauntleroy’ (1886). — Cedric is an Old Welsh name, derived from a combination of two Welsh words, ‘ced’, meaning ‘bounty’ and ‘drych’, meaning ‘pattern’. The meaning of the name is ‘person with generous and friendly traits’. — Famous Cedrics: Cedric Benson – football player, Cedric Ball – basketball player, Cedric Cobbs – football player, Cedric Griffin – football player.
