Origin of the name AEDDON.
Etymology of the name AEDDON.
Meaning of the baby name AEDDON.

  

AEDDON.  The same as Aeddan (q.v.), a diminutive form of Irish Aodh (q.v.), meaning "little Aodh (fire)." 

    Dr. Meyer thinks this Aed Mawr of the Triads was the forefather from whom the Ædui mentioned by Cæsar were called, and further derives from him Cæer Aeedon, or Dun Aeddon, Dun Edin, or Edinburgh.  Yet, on the other hand, it is a part of our English faith that Auld Reekie is our Northumbrian Edwin's burgh. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
