Etymology of the name LYONES.
Meaning of the baby name LYONES.


LYONÉS.  Arthurian.  A variant form of Lyonesse (q.v.), meaning "land of the lioness."  This is the name of a daughter of Sir Persaunt, and wife to Sir Gareth.  She is wrongly called Lyonors (a different person) by Tennyson.

    "Ah!" said Sir Persaunt, "there is the Red Knight of the Red Lands, who is the most perilous knight that I know, and a man that is without mercy, and it is said that he hath seven men's strength.  He doth great wrong to the lady, and that is a pity, for she is one of the fairest in the world.  If thou art her sister, is not thy name Lynette?"
    "Yes," she said, "and my sister's name is Dame Lyones.  And now, my lord," she continued, "I require of ye that ye will make this gentleman a knight or ever he fight with the Red Knight."  To which Sir Persaunt replied, "I will with all my heart, if it please him to take the order of knighthood from so simple a man as I am." (The Story of King Arthur, Brooks-Malory, 1915)
