Boudicca is used in Academe; Boadicea is the "East End" version!
And no, I do not rely on Wiki for reference/sourse material.
Baza, you are right about the way conversations on here can become quite organic!
Just to drift off a little further, I've just borrowed a DVD of Disney's Fantasia from the library - just as wonderful as the first time I saw it in a News rheatre in London.
Apart from the great music, the cartooning is second to none; far better than today's CGI imagery. Originally created in the 1930s? Wow!  :y 8)

Don't worry Ron I have been trying to wind you up!  :P :P

Boudica IS the modern version, yours IS the old version. I am sure that the academics decided that as to pronounce the name in English / American English you do not need the second "C". It is of course amazing how for so long, at least when I was at school, she was known as "Boadicea" and still is in some quarters.  I suppose that's what happens when a name and language travel 2,000 years!! ;D ;D ;D :y

Lizzie, 20 years of teaching teenage boys has rendered me immune from wind-ups!

And we all know what "modern" academics are like, especially the Socialist ones.
No need for endless debate, Lizzie; just accept the fact that I am correct and you are weong - you are a woman, after all!  :P :P :P

Yes, I did spot the typo, after I had pressed the "Post" button.
I will grant you one thing; women are better at typing than men - you know, another one of those boring, repetative tasks at which you are designed for.....

And as a women I always want the last word! So..........no seriously this is a good point we have discussed, and I have found a great site that explains the reasons for different spelling:

Very interesting, Lizzie, and confirmation of the misprint - actually mistranscript - which as I said earlier swapped the second "c" for an "e". That also re-inforces the case for spelling hewr name with two "c"s.
As also pointed out in that article, spelling was a moving target back then, when literacy wasn't widespread. Even The Bard spelled his name in different ways!

Yes indeed, but many academics today do not use the 2nd C. Most of the academic papers and books that I have seen do not, as did my history lecturer at Uni.

The English Language has been evolving through the ages from it's many origins, Germanic, Latin, French, in particular, so has been a moving feast. I have spent many years reading tombstones (or trying to) and the way Olde English evolved to the modern, then now to an Americanised version of English, I find fascinating. The original writings of 16/17th century authors such as Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan (1651) is a very good for us today to see Olde English in it's raw state.  As you hinted, The Bard have helped that evolution by using the language of the day in it's most wonderful form.

No doubt historians and archelogists will get together again and come up with another 6 ways of spelling Boudica / Boudicca / Boadicia, etc...... ;)

Whilst I don't disagree with you, I find such changes pointless in this context. Evolution of spelling/language usualy (but not always!) aids clarity, but in this case we both know whom we are talking about and therefore see no reason to deviate from the original Boudicca - makes me sound posher, too!
Good debate, thogh - now let's go back to talking about gravy?  :y

Ugh, another typo!
Ok, before I leave this diverted topic (sorry OP), following the rules of English pronunciation, "Boudica" would need to be "Boo-dice-ea" and not the correct "Boo=dick-ah".

I've had a google. :)

The car company is called Trident ........so quite appropriate in the context of Boudica.
