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


ESCLADOS.  Arthurian.  In Yvain, Esclados le Ros, the red knight.  The name is equal to Ascalon, and probably means "from Ascalon," a place in the east. (Deutsche Classiker des Mittelalters, Pfeiffer, v.6, Hartmann von Aue, 1888).  The words scallion and shallot were both derived from the place-name. (Principles of English Etymology, Skeat, 1891).

Echalote, sf. (etym. L. Ascalonia, from the proper name Ascalon, shalot. (A Compendious Dictionary of the French Language, Masson, 1874)

    So closely does The Slothful Gillie approximate to the common theme of Yvain and The Lady of the Fountain, that we may venture to explain several features of the Anglo-Norman romance by means of the Celtic folk-tale.  To begin with, the Knight of the Fountain in The Slothful Gillie wears a scarlet mantle and a golden crown, posing as the king of Tir-fa-tonn.  We may take it, then, that Esclados le Ros ("the Red") in Yvain and the black knight in The Lady of the Fountain were usurping the position of the Otherworld king.  Again, the hospitable host in The Slothful Gillie, who gives his name as the Knight of Valour, explains that he is the rightful king.  Probably, therefore, the hospitable host in Yvain and The Lady of the Fountain was likewise the real king. (Folklore, Nutt, v.18, 1907)
