Meaning of the baby name BRANOR.


BRANOR.  Arthurian legend name of an ancient knight, famous for his amazing strength.

    Stout fellows were some of the knights of the romantic period, if we may believe half that is recorded of them.  There is one, Branor le Brun, who is famous for having been a living Quintain.  The game so called consists of riding at a heavy sack suspended on a balanced beam, and getting out of its way, if possible, before the revolving beam brought it round violently against the back of the assailant's head.  When Palamedes challenged old Branor, the aged knight rather scornfully put him aside as an unworthy yet valiant knight.  Branor, however, offered to sit in his saddle motionless, while Palamedes rode at him, and got unhorsed by Branor's mere inert resistance... (Knights and Their Days, Doran, 1864)
