The Suda's gloss may be mistaken, as this headword is best attested (in Euripides and elsewhere) as a poetic word for 'son': see LSJ s.v. But if it is, or is intended to be, a proper name, it is perhaps a variant of Keler. The latter is both a Roman cognomen (e.g. Q. Caecilius Metellus Celer) and a name in its own right (e.g. Plutarch, Romulus 10.3, Coriolanus 11.4); see also under alpha 528. Note also the individual mentioned in late sources as a magistrate under the emperor Anastasius (491-518); his name is variously given as Keler and Kellor.
