Etymology of the name BOUDICA.
Meaning of the baby name BOUDICA.

  

BOUDICA.  Celtic name meaning "victory."  Also see Bonduca, Buddug, and Boadicea.

... Of the various forms actually recorded, Boudica is most favoured by Celtic scholars, as a likely derivative of the root "boudi," victory, seen in Welsh "budd" and "buddugol" (Urk. Spr. 176; Celt. Br. (2), p. 282).  Thus is was a fortunate hit of Theophilus Evans when in his "Drych y Prif Oesoedd" (1716) he styled the queen "Buddug"... (A History of Wales, Lloyd, 1912)
