Meaning of the baby name AFALLECH.

  

AFALLECH.  Welsh name meaning "orchard." In Arthurian legend, this is the name of the king of Avalon.  Also spelled Afallach, Avalloc, and Avallach.

Afallech, proper name.  In the pedigree of Sir Owain Tudor we find the name of "Afallech ap Afflech, ap Beli Mawr."  This Afallech is supposed to be a nephew of the renowned Caswallawn.  On an adjacent hill called "Moel-y-gaer" there are some remains of a British stronghold, which is supposed to have been under the command of Afallech during the Roman incursions.  Afallech, or Afallach, means an orchard.
