Meaning of the baby name GWALCHAVED.


GWALCHAVED.  Arthurian.  A knight of the Round Table, brother of Gwalchmai (Gawain).  It is an ancient Welsh form of Galahad (q.v.), meaning "hawk of summer," form Welsh gwalch "hawk" and hâv/hâf "summer." (The History of Religions, Hopkins, 1918; , Studies in Arthurian Legend, Rhys, 1891; Selections from Sir Thomas Malory's Le morte Darthur, Swiggett, 1911

... there can be little question as to other personages who surround Arthur both in the earlier and later legends.  Myrddin as Merlin; March as King Mark; Gwalchaved as Sir Galahad; Kai as Sir Kay; and Gwenhwyvar as Guinevere have obviously been directly taken over from Welsh story... (The Mythology of Ancient Britain and Ireland, Squire, 1906)
