HELAINE.  Unisex.  Arthurian.  The mother of Lancelot.  And a son of Sir Bors.  A form of Helen (q.v.), meaning "light."  Also see Elaine. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

    Now leave we of Sir Launcelot in Joyous Isle, with the fair lady, Dame Elaine, and Sir Percivale and Sir Ector playing with them; and return we unto Sir Bors de Ganis, and Sir Lionel, which had sought Sir Launcelot nigh by the space of two years, and never could they hear of him.  And so, as they rode thus by adventure, they came unto the house of King Brandegore, and there Sir Bors was well known; for he had gotten a child of the King's daughter fifteen yers before, and his name was Helaine le Blancke.  And, when Sir Bors saw that child, it liketh him passing well: and so those two knights had good cheer of King Brandegore.  And, on the morrow after, Sir Bors came before King Brandegore and said: "Here is my son, Helaine le Blancke, that, as it is said, he is my son; and, sith it is so, I will that ye wit I will have him with me unto King Arthur's court."  "Sir," said the King, "ye may well take him with you; but he is over tender of age."... (History of King Arthur and the Quest of the Holy Grail, Malory-Rhys, 1887)
