Etymology of the name HERZELOYDE.
Meaning of the baby name HERZELOYDE.


HERZELOYDE.  Arthurian.  In Eschenbach's German poem, Parzival, this is the name of the hero's mother, either signifying "heart's-sorrow," or from a French form of the Welsh word arglwydes, meaning "lady, domina."

... Proper names are supplied; Gahmuret for the father of the hero, Herzeloyde for his mother (apparently a romantic formation signifying Heart's-sorrow),... (King Arthur and the Table Round, Chretien-Newell, 1911)

    THE HERO'S MOTHER: Name.—Only two of the seven versions give the name: Sir Perceval of Galles, Acheflour; Parzival, Herzeloyde.  Rhys says: "Now Herzeloyde is clearly nothing but the Welsh word arglwydes, "lady, domina," applied to her in the Welsh original, drawn upon by some one of Wolfram's French predecessors in the treatment of the story."—Arth. Leg., p. 123.  Golther (op. cit., 206, note) considers "Acheflour" a garbling of Crestien's "Blancheflour." (Sir Percival of Galles, Griffith, 1911)
