The only attested MC form is <vthyk>. *Euthik has been deduced from  
the LC hapax
legomenon <ethick> in Fa Ethreaz do chee Ethick gwreage dah John  
Jenkins.
Since MC spellings with either eu/ue or ik are unattested, and since  
ithik is common in Lhuyd,
the SWF should write the word <uthyk>. Euthik is the KK spelling.
