Etymology of the name ETTARD.
Meaning of the baby name ETTARD.

  

ETTARD.  Arthurian.  The name of the unsympathetic lover of Pelleas, perhaps of Teutonic origin, meaning "the hard one."  Malory calls her Ettarre (q.v.).

 ... Tennyson did not invent Ettarre.  It occurs in the fourth book of Malory's "Morte Darthur" as Ettard. (Notes and Queries, v.4, Jul-Dec., 1905).

... After Sir Pelleas's unfortunate love-passage with Ettarre (or Ettard, as Malory calls her), he is represented as marrying Nimue, whose original name, which was Rhiannon, reached this form, as well as that of "Vivien", through a series of miscopyings of successive scribes... (The Mythology of the British Islands, Squire, 1905)
