Origin of the name ACCALON.
Etymology of the name ACCALON.
Meaning of the baby name ACCALON.


ACCALON.  Also Accolon.  Arthurian legend name of a knight of the Round Table.  Meaning unknown.  Possibly connected with the penal city of Acre, which also occurs in the form Acca.  Latin Acca/Akka means "mother" (or "cow"), and was the name of the mother of the Lares. 

    It was well known that the ancient penal city of Acca, Akka, or Acre (Accho, Achor, or Sainte Jean d'Acre of old) was a totally unfit and unsafe place in which to live, owing to the foulness and unhealthfulness of the city and its surroundings.  To this death-trap those friends in the garb of religious servers of God managed to induce the government to remove the peaceful and law-abiding prisoners... (Mind, v.15, Jan. 1905)

    Now it happened some time after noon that the hounds started a hart of extraordinary size, and the King and all of his Court followed the chase with great eagerness.  But the horse of King Arthur soon out-stripped all the other horses saving only that of a certain very honorable and worthy knight of the Court hight Sir Accalon of Gaul.  So Sir Accalon and the King rode at a great pace through the forest, and they were so eager with the chase that they wist not whither they were riding.  And at last they overtook the hart and found that it was embushed in a certain very thick and tangled part of the forest, and there King Arthur slew the stag, and so the chase was ended.
    Now after this had come to pass, the King and Sir Accalon would have retraced their way whither they had come, but in a little they perceived that they were lost in the mazes of the woodland and wist not where they were...
(The Story of King Arthur and His Knights, Pyle, 1909)
