Tudor is the name of an English royal house as well as the name of a historical era (1485-603), named from the House of Tudor. The name comes from Welsh Tudur which seems to be derived from Proto-Celtic Toutorix meaning “ruler of the people” or “ruler/king of the tribe”, composed of Proto-Celtic elements *toutā (people, tribe) and *rīxs (king); making it a cognate of Germanic Theodoric.
Tudor is also a Romanian male name, a variant of Teodor which is the Scandinavian form of Theodore meaning “gift of God” or “God’s gift”.
