Meaning of the baby name CALOGRENANT.


CALOGRENANT.  French Arthurian legend name of a knight of the Round Table.  Author Martín Aurell, in his book, La Légende du Roi Arthur, gives the etymology, Keu le grognon, meaning "Kay the grumpy."  He is also known by the name Colgrevance.

    At Whitsuntide, when King Arthur was holding court in Carlisle, it happened on a morn that the king forgot himself and slumbered in his chamber, while his knights kept the door; to pass the time, Calogrenant related a misadventure of his own.  The queen overheard him, and slipt out so quietly that none of the knights perceived her, save only Calogrenant, who rose to receive her.  Kay, who loved to rail, said that Calogrenant thought himself the only courteous person in the company, because he alone had observed the lady... (King Arthur and the Table Round, Crestien-Newell, 1897)
