The goddess's name is linked to . A legendary [[dinnseanchas]] poem relates a myth connecting her with Tailtiu with [[Aonach Tailteann]], [[Contae na Mí]]. <ref>Gwynn, E., trans., "Poem 33: Tailtiu," ''The Metrical Dindshenchas'', http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/T106500D/index.html</ref> However, linguistic analysis of the name reveals that Tailtiu as a place-name derives from a loan word of Brythonic origin represented by the Welsh ''telediw'' "well formed, beautiful." <ref>Binchy, D.A., ‘The Fair of Tailtiu and the Feast of Tara,’ Ériu 18 (1958) 113-138.</ref> The mythological character of Tailtiu likely derives her name from the place-name.
