NAME OF THE DAY
The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. According to some interpretations it is derived from Anglo-Saxon, while others may be connected to “Caratacos”, a Breton name derived from the Celtic “car”, which means "love". This name was misread for “Cerdic”, the name of a Saxon king, anglicized from Welsh “caredig” (beloved), cited by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle as the founder of the kingdom of Wessex and ancestor of all its subsequent kings.
