Cedric Diggory may have had a tragic end, but baby Cedric will be in for a bright future full of your adoration with this name's sweet meaning. This name has Old English origins and means "kindly, loved." Sir Walter Scott invented this name for the character Cedric of Rotherwood in his nineteenth-century book Ivanhoe, although he may have been inspired by Cerdic, the traditional founder of the kingdom of Wessex. This old-school name might also be related to the Welsh name Cedrych, which means "pattern of bounty."
