Meaning of the baby name AMAETHON.


AMAETHON.  Welsh name derived from the vocabulary word amaethon, meaning "agriculturist." (An English-Welsh Pronouncing Dictionary, Spurrell, 1872).  Bury renders it "the divine husbandman," and provides the old Celtic form Ambactonos.  See his note under Tigernonos. (The Cambridge Medieval History, Bury, v.2, 1913)

    "Seest thou that vast hill yonder? said Yspydaden to Kulhwch...
    "I must have it rooted up from the ground, and the grubbings burned for manure on the face of the land:  I must have it ploughed and sown in one day, and have it ripen in the space of one day.  Of that wheat it is that I must have food and liquor duly made for the wedding of thee and my daughter...
    "No husbandman can till or dress that land on account of its tangled state except Amaethon son of Don:  he will not follow thee of his free will, and thou canst not force him... (
Studies in the Arthurian Legend, Rhys, 1891).
