Etymology of the name LYONORS.
Meaning of the baby name LYONORS.
legend name of the unwed mother of sir Borre by king Arthur. If not
a form of Lyones (from the
land of the lioness), it may be a form of Latin Eleanora
daughter of Earl Sanam. She came to pay homage to King Arthur, and
by him became the mother of Sir Borre, one of the knights of the Round
Table.—Sir T. Malory, History of Prince Arthur, i. 15 (1470).
Liones, daughter of Sir Persaunt, and sister of
Linet, of Castle Perilous, married Sir Gareth. Tennyson calls this
Lady "Lyonors," and makes Gareth marry her sister, who, we are
told in the History, was married to Sir Gaheris (Gareth's
brother). (Character Sketches of Romance, Fiction and the Drama,
