Origin of the name LYNETTE.
Etymology of the name LYNETTE.
Meaning of the baby name LYNETTE.

  

LYNETTE.  Arthurian.  A variant spelling of English Linette (q.v.), a form of Old German Linheit (q.v.), meaning "mild."  Usage: America, Australia, England, Wales.

    Lynette, sister of lady Lyonors of Castle Perilous.  She goes to king Arthur, and prays him to send sir Lancelot to deliver her sister from certain knights.  The king assigns the quest to Beaumains (the nickname given by sir Kay to Gareth), who had served for twelve months in Arthur's kitchen.  Lynette is exceedingly indignant, and treats her champion with the utmost contumely; but, after each victory, softens towards him, and at length marries him.—Tennyson: Idylls of the King ("Gareth and Lynette").
    N.B.—This version of the tale differs from that of the History of Prince Arthur by sir T. Malory (1470) in many respects. (See Linet).
