Meaning of the baby name BAGDEMAGUS.


BAGDEMAGUS.  Arthurian legend name of the father of Meleagant.  It appears to be an Arabic name; compare Muhammed Bagdedinus. (Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, v.22, Oct. 1915 thru July 1916).  Bagde/Baghde might be "Baghdad."  Bagh means "garden."  Magus means "a magician; one of the magi or Magians," wise men of the ancient Medes and Persians.  Therefore, possibly, "Baghdad magician" or "garden magician." (The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia, Whitney, 1911)

... Sir Launcelot descended to where Elouise was, and he found that a fair supper had been set for his refreshment.  So he sat and ate, and Elouise the Fair herself served him.
    The theme, used by Malory in his nineteenth book, is the rape of Guenevere from the court by a certain Meleagant, son to King Bagdemagus of Gorre, and her rescue by Lancelot... Lancelot conquers Meleagant, but gets scant reward; for the queen treats him cruelly, when they meet... (Le morte Darthur of Sir Thomas Malory, Scudder, 1921)
