Etymology of the name SOREDAMORS.
Meaning of the baby name SOREDAMORS.


SOREDAMORS.  Arthurian.  A sister of Gauvain.  A French name, meaning "gilt by love."  Also spelled Soredamor.

    A mighty emperor of Byzantium, Alexander, and his consort Tantalis had two sons, Alexander and Alis, (Alexius).  The elder had heard of Arthur and the Round Table, and would receive the stroke of knighthood from no one else.  With great difficulty he obtains from his father permission to go to Europe,—even the assurance of abdication in his favor will not keep him back.  Loaded with treasure and with the admonitions of his father above all to practice liberality, Alexander, accompanied by a crowd of young men of his own age, takes leave of parents and home, and pushes out into the sea.  The passage lasts all of April and part of May.  They land in Southhampton (au port desoz Hautone), and proceed the next day to Winchester (Guincestre), where Arthur holds his court.  They present themselves before the king and are received with honour (45-384).  Alexander makes the acquaintance of Gauvain and wins all hearts by his liberality.  Soon after this Arthur wishes to go over to Brittany (Armorica), and, on the advice of his men, names Count Engrès, of Windsor (Guinesores), as regent of England (384-440).  Alexander accompanies the king in whose ship he crosses with the queen and the maid of honour Soredamors, the sister of Gauvain, to whom up to this time the subject of love has been repugnant.  Cupid revenges himself upon Soredamors, who falls violently in love with Alexander and breaks out in moving lamentations... (The University Magazine, v.5, 1891)
