Meaning:Dark one; powerful
Kedar is a masculine name, artfully balancing untouchable heights with the grounding power of darkness. From the Hebrew qadar, "to become dark," Kedar emerges as meaning "dark one." Not to be relegated to sinister misdeeds, Kedar holds space for life's murkier paths and the moments of sorrow that come to pass. Such dimness allows Kedar's Arabic meaning to shine more forcibly, its root q-d-r revealing the alternative meaning "power" or "ability." In all its complexity, Kedar's diverse etymology holds within it a deep understanding that it is often darkness that shows one's inner light most brilliantly.
