Meaning of the baby name LYONORS.

  

LYONORS.  Arthurian legend name of the unwed mother of sir Borre by king Arthur.  If not a form of Lyones (from the land of the lioness), it may be a form of Latin Eleanora (light).

    Lyonors, daughter of Earl Sanam.  She came to pay homage to King Arthur, and by him became the mother of Sir Borre, one of the knights of the Round Table.—Sir T. Malory, History of Prince Arthur, i. 15 (1470).
    Liones, daughter of Sir Persaunt, and sister of Linet, of Castle Perilous, married Sir Gareth.  Tennyson calls this Lady "Lyonors," and makes Gareth marry her sister, who, we are told in the History, was married to Sir Gaheris (Gareth's brother). (Character Sketches of Romance, Fiction and the Drama, Brewer, 1902)
