Commentary

Patronymic of *tekio- or *dekio-. The origin from Lat. *decios is dubious. Could be related to Deica, Deico; some Gaulish names on tek- or teg- exist: Deccius, Decius, Teccius, Tecco etc. (cf. Lejeune 1971: 48, 51, 65 fn. 224, 81-83, Evans 1972: 181, Tibiletti Bruno 1978: 136, Rix 1995: 737, GPN: 474-5, Sims-Williams 2003: 52, 172 ?).
