Etymology of the name ANTOR.
Meaning of the baby name ANTOR.

  

ANTOR.  Arthurian.  Possibly a corruption of Arthur (q.v.), also of uncertain derivation, possibly meaning "bear," or "high."  

Antor, Anthor (Arntor, Auctor, Artus), father of Kex, Artus's seneschal, and foster-father of Artus, II, 74-77; 80; 83-85; 89; 90; 92; 102; 105; 111; 117; 128; 148; 153; 156; VII, 12; 15; 37; 47; 49; 53; 55; 56; 60; 64; 133; 138; 139; sa feme, 75; 77; 90; son fil, see Kex, Keu.
    In the MSS. No. 748, 105 and 9123 and in several others at the Bibliotheque Nationale, Add. 32, 125.  British Museum, Antor is consistently named Artus.I believe Robert de Borron gave the same name Arthur to
Artus and his foster-father, and that the forms Auctor, Arntor, Anthor are corruptions of Arthur, a form still to be found in many French MSS. (Index to the Vulgate Version of the Arthurian Romances, Sommer, 1916).
