Origin of the name EREC.
Etymology of the name EREC.
Meaning of the baby name EREC.


EREC.  Arthurian.  French form of Erik (q.v.), from Old Norse Eiríkr (q.v.), meaning "always mighty."  Also spelled Eric (q.v.).  Chrestien de Troyes made this name famous in his story of Erec and Enide, the French version of Geraint and Enid.

Already had arrived the petty folk, scullions, cooks, and butlers, to prepare the hostels; the main troop followed hard after, and by this time had entered the city; the knights of Arthur encountered and saluted them, with many kisses.  Erec and his companions went to their inn, where they eased themselves, stripping their hose and donning rich robes; when they were arrayed, they turned toward the palace.  To court they came; the king saw them, and the queen, who was wild to set eyes on Erec.  King Arthur seated Erec at his side, kissing him, and Guivret after; Enidè he clasped in both arms, embraced her and made much of her, and the queen did the like, so taken up with the guests that she thought of nothing beside... (King Arthur and the Table Round, Crestien-Newell, 1898)
