Thread: Arthurian names
June 4th, 2014 02:34 PM #1
I am searching for my copy of Le Morte d'Arthur now because I got interested in Arthurian names. I think Guinevere, Isolde, Tristram, Percival and Gareth are all very attractive and usable. Right now I can think of Morgana, Blanchefleur and Nimueh/Ninianne/Vivianne but I don't really like them.
Does somebody know any other Arthurian names? I would be interested to find some more and of course, some opinions are welcome. Thank you for your time and help!Olympia

I LOVE Arthurian names. Arthur and Emrys (Which is Merlin's middle name in Welsh. In English he is Merlin Ambrosius in Welsh he is Myrddin Emrys) are some of my favourite names. Merlin is also a GP and I love Morgana.
Some more that are nice/ workable:
Caelia - The faerie Queen.
Cador - A Knight of the round table
Claudin - another Knight
Hector - Lancelot's half brother
Lucan - Knight
Madoc - Arthur's brother/ Uther's Son
Medrawd (in Welsh) or Mordred (English) - A Knight and in some cases Arthur's illegitimate son
Drystan/ Trystan - Knight and one of Arthur's advisors
Owian - Knight
Aglovale - Knight and King Pellinore's eldest son
Clarissant - Gwain's sister
Brastias - Knight and confidant of King Uther
Blaise - A cleric
