I found 3 references to Myrrdin in a quick scan of my library.  And I'm somewhat confused by them, since I'm not familiar with Myrrdin.  Here's what I've got:

Charles Squire, in Celtic Myth and Legend, refers to Myrrdin as "the Zeus of Arthur's cycle" and credits his wife, Elen with founding the town of Carmarthen (Caer Myrddin).  Squire also refers briefly to a 6th century bard named Myrddin.

Miles Dillon and Nora Chardwick, in The Celtic Realms, have a fair amount of detail about the 6th century bard, Myrddin, who was apparently a prophet.

RJ Stewart, in Celtic Gods and Celtic Goddessess, also includes quite a bit of info on Merlin and the prophecies of Merlin, whom he equates with Myrddin.

Sorry, that's all I could find.

That's a good deal more than I found! I'll try a library search on these titles later today to see if I can get them through the regional library. Thanks Moon Ivy!

Also, I was thinking over the weekend and had a 'duh!' moment. If (In a Gwyddon perspective) gods and goddesses were once living human beings, why would Myrddin-the-god *not* be Myrddin-the-prophet? I slapped myself pretty hard on that one! Cheesy

Back to Google with me, then...
