ESSYLT.  Arthurian.  Cornish or Welsh.  The lover of Trystan.  Cognate with French Iseult (q.v.), from Old German Ishild (q.v.), meaning "ice-fighter." (The Journal of the American-Irish Historical Society, v.13, 1914).  Also spelled Esylt.

... The Triads begin by declaring that the three mighty swineherds of the Isle of Britain were Pryderi, Coll, and Trystan.
