Etymology of the name BEAUMAINS.
Meaning of the baby name BEAUMAINS.

  

BEAUMAINS.  French Arthurian, meaning "beautiful hands," a name given to Gareth by Sir Kay in ridicule of his large hands.

... Beaumains, according to Thomas Malory in the Morte d'Arthur, the nickname given to Gareth by Sir Kay.  The entire legend of Gareth's first coming to Arthur's court, being fed for a year in the royal kitchen and receiving the nickname is probably a folk tale which had no connection with the Arthurian cycle until Malory or some unknown writer before him adapted it from a French source now lost. (Heroes and Heroines of Fiction, Walsh, 1915)
