Meaning of the baby name CLARISSANT.


CLARISSANT.  French Arthurian legend name of the sister of Gawain (Gauvain).  It is an elaborated form of Clarisse (q.v.), meaning "she does famously." (A Dictionary of Medieval Romance and Romance Writers, Spence, 1913).

... The theme is, that Queen Igerna, the mother of Arthur, with her daughter Anna, wife of Lot, at the time king of Norway, and mother of Gawain, and with her granddaughter Clarissant, sister of Gawain, has, at the time of the disturbances already mentioned as subsequent to the death of her husband Uther (Uter in French spelling), fled to this wilderness; here she has erected a castle, which, by the aid of art magic, she has fortified with enchantments in such manner that only a perfect knight can enter... (King Arthur and the Table Round, Crestien-Newell, 1911)
