CONSTANTINE.  Irish and Scottish ornamental name for Congal ("chief courage," "mighty warrior") and Conchobar ("high helper"). 
    Robert Louis Constantine Lee-Dillon Fitzgibbon (d. 1983), was an Irish-American historian and novelist.

... The Constantines of Hector Boece's line of Scottish kings are ornamental Congals and Conchobars; and, in like manner, Ireland has turned many a Connal and Connor into Constantine in more modern times, accounting for the prevalence of the trisyllabled Roman as a surname. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

CONSTANTINE.  American, English.  Of Latin origin, meaning "constant," from constans, a word meaning holding together firmly, and compounded of con (together), and stans, the participle of the verb sto (I am, or I stand).  Also see Connie
    Constantine James Maroulis, an American actor, rock singer, and writer.  Constantine John Phipps, 2nd Baron Mulgrave (d. 1792), was an English explorer and officer of the Royal Navy. (Wiki)

... After Emperor Lucius invades Arthur's possessions in France, a Privy Council at York is held to select a regent; Arthur wills the sovereignty to Sir Constantine should he not return, then he leaves Britain to defend his possessions.  It is after Lancelot's death, that Constantine becomes king... (A Dictionary of Medieval Romance and Romance Writers, Spence, 1913)
