Linda,
I think Cid is "Gallego", which might mean that it originates from Portugal.

Pardon me for interrupting the conversation about the name "Cid". The name has an Arabic origin. In the mid-eleventh century a great leader of the Christian forces emerged. The Arabic-speaking people called him "al said" (or "sayyid"). The Andalusian dialect used the expressiion "el sidi". The words mean "lord" as in "senor". It was an outward recognition of the man's military, political and administrative tyalents. His name is usually written as "Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar". Some writers call him "Ruy". He was from the town of Vivar, Spain about six miles from Burgos. Burgos is due north of Madrid close to the Cantabrian coast. Google and read the Wikipedia article. It's short and mostly accurate.

Dispensen. Se me olvido que hay socios quienes prefieren leer los mensajes en espanol. Simplemente les recuerdo que el nombre 'Cid' tiene origen arabe. Recuerden la historia de la Reconquista en Espana. Un guerrero valiente y capaz recibio el sobrenombre de 'al said' o 'el sayyid' entre los musulmanes en la Espana del siglo once. En Andalusia se decia 'el sidi'. El significado es 'senyor' en conocimiento del respeto que se gano. El nombre cristiano fue: Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar (o Ruy). Don Rodrigo era original del pueblo de Vivar cerca de Burgos, Espana. Burgos se encuentra en el mapa al norte de Madrid, cerca de la costa Cantabrica.

Yes, I had read about this also. There was a movie made about "El Cid" (link below) where Charleton Heston portrayed him. Very interesting. El Cid means "The Lord," from what I can understand...Thanks for sharing this very interesting information about our cultural history...

Dear Group,
Many cultures have epic poems that originated as oral history and were eventually written. Among the most famous are Homer's the Iliad and the Odyssey from Greece, The Song of Roland from France, and El Cid from Spain. I love that stuff!! Alice

When I first told my husband that I had linked with the famous Rodrigo Diaz Bivar (aka El Cid), he simply rolled his eyes and proceeded to tell there was "no such person," it's a myth... ok, what did I know, I actually believed him. But with time and more research I was able to convince him that El Cid was real...

PS.. If the Spanish conquistadores had had the foresight and appreciation that the Romans had of the Greek civilization and hadn't tried to totally destroy the Mexica/Azteca libraries and culture, we would have wonderful epic poems the indigenous emperors themselves had written. It sustains my belief in the inherent wisdom of mankind, when I read that some of our group members feel it just as important to seek our indigineous roots as those from Europe. Alice

Thanks, Robert. Your message brought back memories of my mother. She was a teacher in Mexico and introduced me to precolombian history and the wonderful poetry of the Mexica king Nezahuacoytl. Alice

when you have time can you post a very simple straight line report
showing your connection, that is unless it is already there (just post
the URL in that case). I've always wondered if my Diaz were somehow part
of his Diaz. Would be fun to see how you make your way back that far. so
interesting. thanks.
