Meaning of the baby name PALOMIDES.


PALOMIDES.  Arthurian.  A Saracen knight in Mort d'Arthur.  The name may signify a Mede brandishing a weapon.  See Pallas.  Cf. Palladius.  And see Palamedes.

    Palomides (Sir), son and heir of sir Astlabor.  His brothers were sir Safire and sir Segwarides.  He is always called the Saracen, meaning "unchristened."  Next to the three great knights (sir Launcelot, sir Tristram, and sir Lamorake), he was the strongest and bravest of the fellowship of the Round Table.  Like sir Tristram, he was in love with La Belle Isond wife of king Mark of Cornwall; but the lady favoured the love of sir Tristram, and only despised that of the Saracen knight.  After his combat with sir Tristram, sir Palomides consented to be baptized by the bishop of Carlisle (pt. iii. 28)...
