Since my dog’s name is Cheddar I will do a little blurb of the etymology of his name. There exists in England a town named Cheddar. The word comes from old English ceodre meaning ravine, and there does happen to be one of those near the town. About 6,000 people can say they live in Cheddar. Britain’s oldest complete human skeleton is known as “Cheddar man” was also found in this town.
Cheddar or “chedda” can also be used as a slang term for money.
