Bydand is a Viking/Scot word in origin meaning steadfast, loyal, enduring, and courage.

To me, this describes a Newf well. Ther are very loyal to their humans and whenever possible should only have one family. To look at t all the accounts of Newfs who have rescued countless numbers of people from shipwrecks and other situations, you know they are also courageous.
