Meaning: Love Origin: Brythonic
The name Cedric was actually invented by an author, Sir Walter Scott, and was used in his novel Ivanhoe. It is suspected that he based the name on the Celtic Cerdic, which derives from Caratacos, meaning ‘Love’.
I really enjoy nickname option Ced, and its similarities to Sid, just a little more unique.
Other similar name options could be: Frederick, Siddig, Roderick or Rickon.
