Etymology of the name CAI.
Meaning of the baby name CAI.

  

CAI.  Arthurian.  A knight of the Round Table.  From Latin Caius (q.v.), meaning "rejoicing."

... In the British romances there is a knight very much like Astolph.  This is Sir Kay or Cai: the French call him Queux.  "Sir Kay is represented by the romance writers as caustick and fond of scandal, always boasting of his prowess, often fighting, and as often beaten... In the Triades the name of Cai occurs with considerable distinction.  He is associated with Trystan and with Huail, and is styled one of "the three crowned chiefs of battle of the isle of Britain."óWay's Fabliaux, notes, pp. 203 and 214. (Orlando Innamorato, Panizzi, v.2, 1830)
