Etymology of the name KUNDRY.
Meaning of the baby name KUNDRY.

  

KUNDRY.  Arthurian.  An evil witch and seductress called "a strange creation."  Also spelled Cundrie.

... The talk is of Amfortis, the king, and of his incurable wound.  A wild gallop, a rush of sound, and a weird woman, with streaming hair, springs towards the startled group.  She bears a phial, with rare balsam from the Arabian shores.  It is for the king's wound.  Who is the wild horsewoman?—Kundry—strange creation—a being doomed to wander—like the Wandering Jew, the wild Huntsman, or Flying Dutchman—always seeking a deliverance she cannot find—Kundry, who, in ages gone by, met the Saviour on the road to Calvary, and derided him.  Some said she was Herodias' daughter.  Now filled with remorse, yet weighted with sinful longings, she serves by turns the Knights of the Grail, then falls under the spell of Klingsor, the evil knight sorcerer, and in the guise of an enchantress, is compelled by him to seduce, if possible, the Knights of the Grail... (My Musical Life, Haweis, 1898).
