ARGANTE.  Arthurian legend name, possibly of Greek origin, from argentos/ἀργήντος, meaning "white, shining," or argentinos/αργεντινός, meaning "silvery."

    In Spenser's Faërie Queene, iii. 7, this is the name of a giantess of unbridled licentiousness.  "That geauntesse Argantè is behight, / A daughter of the Titans.../ Her sire Typhœus was..."óBook iii. 7, st. 47... (Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, Brewer, 1905) 

... I give thee here my kingdom, and defend thou my Britons ever well by thy life, and maintain them all the laws that have stood in my days, and all the good laws that in Uther's days stood.  And I will fare to Avalon, to the fairest of all maidens, to Argante the queen, an elf most fair, and she shall make my wounds all sound, make me all whole with healing draughts.  And afterwards I will come again to my kingdom, and dwell with the Britons with mickle joy."... (Monthly Packet, Yonge, v.1, 1881)
