Meaning of the baby name BLANCHEFLEUR.


BLANCHEFLEUR.  French Arthurian legend name, meaning "white flower."

... Now as Sir Galahad, beautiful and young, had ridden up and down in quest of the Holy Grail, many damsels and ladies had loved him and some had tempted him.  But by one only had his heart been stirred.  This, one must know, had been at the first, when he was but young in the quest, and youthful blood was quick within him.  For when he had left the care of Gurnemanz and ridden a little way into the world, he came at the end of a day's journey to a town defended by a castle, and when he had entered therein he found all, even the very convents, waste and deserted.  Then came there to him the lady of the castle, and when Galahad saw her he was filled with something half like wonder, for she was young and slim, but colored as of ivory and gold, and fair as a white flower on a sunny morning.  And she told Sir Galahad that her name was Blanchefleur, which signifies "white flower," and that she was niece to Gurnemanz, his tutor in the lore of this world.  And she courteously bade him sit by her side at table... (Quest of the Holy Grail, Greenslet, 1902)
