Spanish given name, meaning - "simpleton, stupid; warhorse"
According to legend Babieca - frail and wild and when El Cid chose her, his godfather exclaimed "Babieca!" and so this became his name. But Babieca was not stupid; he became a great and famous warhorse and El Cid loved him so much he requested that he be buried with him in the monastery of San Pedro de Cardena. Unfortunately, his wish was not granted; instead Babieca was buried before the gate of the monastery and two elms were planted to mark the site.
