Teucer was the first mythical king of Troy, the son of the river god Scamander and the nymph Idaea. Another Teucer was the son of Telamon by Hesione. We can look for a sense 'craftsman' in the name, from teucho, 'to.make', 'construct', or else propose a 'watery' name to match derivations suggested for Hesione ('shore') and Telamon ('marsh'). Such an origin might be in deuso, Ί will wet', Ί will soak', from deuo, 'to wet', 'soak'. Compare Deucalion.
