Angharad Origin and Meaning

The name Angharad is a girl's name meaning "much loved".

This name dates back to Arthurian legend, in which Angharad was the lover of Percival, one of the Knights of the Round Table, and was used more recently for the name of the favorite wife of the warlord in Mad Max: Fury Road. It was quite popular in the Middle Ages and is still heard in Wales, but we doubt that even the glamorous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley could propel it to wider popularity.

Maybe I misunterpret what “ah” is supposed to sound like, but I would say “ah” to rhyme with “far”. So I wouldn’t use “ah” to describe how to pronounce Angharad. It should be an open mouthed a rhyming with “fan”. Ang-HA-rad.

The character in Robin McKinley's The Blue Sword hated her name, but I always thought it was pretty cool. The nickname she used, Harry, is cute too.
