Avagddu

Welsh - Son of Tegid Voel and Ceridwen. Brother of Creirwy and Morvran. He was very ugly, so Ceridwen prepared a magic brew to make him very wise as compensation. In the event, her plans went astray and it was the boy Gwion who became the wise man Taliesin. In some accounts Avagddu is merely a nickname for Morvran. In some lore, occasionally identified as Avagddu, Afagddu, Afagddu, Afgaddu, Afgaddu, Avagdu or Avagdu.
