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.

I would imagine that the u- form is the most heavily attested.
