Etymology of the name ENYGEUS.
Meaning of the baby name ENYGEUS.


ENYGEUS.  Arthurian.  The grandmother of Percival.  From Anjuicienne, a corrupted form of French Venissienne, meaning "Phoenician."

... During the forty years, Joseph of Arimathaea is nourished and illumined by the holy vessel, until he is set free by Vespasian, who, having been miraculously healed, has come to take vengeance on the Jews.  With his sister Enygeus, her husband Hebron, and a company of believers, Joseph journeys into foreign lands.  In consequence of the sin of lust, a famine falls on the troop; Joseph, praying according to his custom before the vessel, is directed to make a table in imitation of that of the Last Supper, on which he is to put the vessel, and a fish caught by Hebron, who thence receives the name of the Rich Fisher... (King Arthur and the Table Round, Newell-Chrétien, 1911)

... I must briefly notice Prof. Heinzel's explanation of the name of Bron, the first Grail keeper in Robert de Borron.  Among the companions of Joseph was the Veronica, the owner of the portrait of Christ.  Early Christian legend made of her a Phoenician Mary, in French, Marie la Venissienne, a corrupt form of which, M. l'Anjuicienne, originated the name Enygeus, Eniseus, given to Joseph's sister and Bron's wife.  Her other appellation, mulier Veronica, was taken as "femme d'Ebron", whence by misinterpretation "femme de Bron", and she was thus provided with a husband named Bron (or, in some texts, Hebron)... (Folklore, a Quarterly Review, v.3, 1892)
