I don't like the name so much as I like its associations. All schoolchildren in Britain learn about Boudicca (or Boadicea depending on the generation!) and I've always thought her a great namesake. I would never use this name for a child, but maybe as a middle name for a future character...

This is a cool name! in the form Boadicea, it reminds me of "The Infernal Devices".

She sounds like an absolute fighter! Such a gem. It's so appropriate, especially since Boudicca fought against all odds, and not for herself- for her tribe, but mostly for her daughters who had been violated by the Romans.

I named my daughter Boudicca as soon as I found out her sex. She fought to survive while being born, and then again 3 weeks later when she was resuscitated twice with bronchitis. She is a very strong willed, funny little girl and I feel we have named her appropriately!
