Meaning of the baby name EVELAKE.

  

EVELAKE.  Arthurian.  A form of Welsh Afallach (q.v.), meaning "orchard.  The name of a king who is given a magical shield by Joseph of Aramathea, which later becomes Galahad's shield.

... And so he laboured till that they came to a city that hight Sarras.  And at that same hour that Joseph came to Sarras there was a king that hight Evelake, that had great war against the Saracens, and in especial against one Saracen, the which was King Evelake's cousin, a rich king and a mighty, which marched nigh this land, and his name was called Tolleme la Feintes.  So on a day these two met to do battle.  Then Joseph, the son of Joseph of Aramathie, went to King Evelake and told him he should be discomfit and slain, but if he left his belief of the old law and believed upon the new law.  And then there he shewed him the right belief of the Holy Trinity, to the which he agreed unto with all his heart; and there this shield was made for King Evelake, in the name of Him that died upon the Cross.  And then through his good belief he had the better of King Tolleme.  For when Evelake was in the battle there was a cloth set afore the shield, and when he was in the greatest peril he let put away the cloth, and then his enemies saw a figure of a man on the Cross, wherethrough they all were discomfit.  And so it befell that a man of King Evelake's was smitten his hand off, and bare that hand in his other hand; and Joseph called that man unto him and bade him go with good devotion touch the Cross.  And as soon as that man had touched the Cross with his hand it was as whole as ever it was to-fore... (Le morte Darthur, Malory, 1903)
