Nuada

Pinterest


Origin: Celtic

Meaning: an Irish masculine name possibly meaning either "protector" or "fog".

I've also seen it listed as possibly being related to a Germanic root word meaning "acquire, have the use of".

In Irish mythology, Nuada Airgetlám (Nuada of the Silver Arm) was king of the Tuatha Dé Danann who lost his arm in battle and which was later replaced by a silver one.

I've heard it pronounced noo-a-da or noo-a-tha


Variants:
  • Nuadha 
  • Nudd (Welsh)
