Meaning of the baby name AGRAVAIN.

  

AGRAVAIN.  In Arthurian legend, the name of a knight of the Round Table, surnamed "the desirous" or "the haughty."  Also spelled Agrawain.

Agravain (Sir), surnamed "The Desirous," and also "The Haughty."  He was son of Lot (king of Orkney) and Margawse half-sister of king Arthur.  His brothers were sir Gawain, sir Gaheris, and sir Gareth.  Mordred was his half-brother, being the son of king Arthur and Margawse.  Sir Agravain and sir Mordred hated sir Launcelot, and told the king he was too familiar with the queen; so they asked the king to spend the day in hunting, and kept watch.  The queen sent for sir Launcelot to her private chamber, and sir Agravain, sir Mordred, and twelve others assailed the door, but sir Launcelot slew them all except sir Mordred, who escaped.—Sir T. Malory, History of Prince Arthur, iii. 142-145 (1470). (Character Sketches of Romance, Fiction and the Drama, Brewer, v.1, 1901)
