Etymology of the name SIGUNE.
Meaning of the baby name SIGUNE.


SIGUNE.  Arthurian.  A cousin of sir Parcival in the tragic story of Sigune and Schianatulander in the poem "Titurel," by Wolfram von Eschenbach.  Her name probably means "the conquering one," from sieg; in the story she is an awakener of conscience.  See explanation under Siegminne.

... Parzival followed his mother's instructions to the letter, however, and came away scatheless.  Then he met his cousin, Sigune, and it may be said here that Sigune represents in the poem the awakened conscience or intelligence within ourselves, which takes note of our mistakes and illuminates our progress... (The Legends of Parsifal, Ford, 1904)

... Sigune was the daughter of Duke Kiot of Katalonia and of Joisiane, daughter of Frimutel, the Grail-king.  Joisiane died in giving birth to her, so Tempetiere, the brother of Kiot, took the baby girl and raised her together with his own daughter Konduiramur.  But when Herzeleide had lost her first husband Kastis on her wedding-day, she took Sigune to her as a consolation.  When the girl grew up she met at the time of the tournament of Herzeleide at Kanvoleis, a young page whom the French queen Amflise had given to Gamuret when he left his country to seek adventure in the heathen lands.  This page was Schianatulander, a grandson of Gurnemanz, and son of Mahaute and of Gorgegris, who was slain by Mabonagrin at Joie de la Cour.  Sigune and the page fell deeply in love, and he served her as a true knight until his death... (American Theosophist, v.12, 1910)
