St. Lupus of Troyes (c. 383 – c. 478) became bishop of Troyes around 426.
The Latin word lupus means ‘wolf’ and so the name is sometimes translated in Welsh to Bleidd (‘Wolf’). Wace, in his Roman de Brut, mistakenly renders the name as Louis, which Lawman in his Brut renders as Leois.
Some Name VariationsEdit
