Cedric (m) The name of a character in Sir Walter Scott’s
Ivanhoe (1820) and later that of the hero in Frances
Hodgson Burnett’s Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886). E. G.
Withycombe (Oxford Dictionary of English Christian
Names) has suggested that Scott made a mistake and
meant to use the name Cerdic, which is identified with
Welsh Ceredig, ‘amiable.’ Trefor Davies (A Book of Welsh
Names) suggests instead that the Celtic name Cedrych
was simplified by Scott.
