Etymology of the name ANCELOT.
Meaning of the baby name ANCELOT.


ANCELOT.  Arthurian.  French name meaning "the servant."  A translation of the Celtic.  See note below.  And see Lancelot.

Maél-was, a servant boy, was translated into old Romance French as the former, by the word Ancel, or Ancelot, otherwise L'Ancelot; Villemarqué quotes a mention of the 'fable Ancelot et Tristan,' from the romance of Ogier, to show that in earlier days Mael, or Ancelot, was mentioned without the article, which has since become incorporated with it, so that Lancelot has grown to be the accepted name, and so universally supposed to mean a lance, that the Welsh themselves, re-importing his history, called him Palladr, a shivered lance. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
