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

  

MORGAINE.  Arthurian.  A French form of Morgan (q.v.), derived from Celtic Morrigan (q.v.), meaning "great queen." 

    King Arthur's sister, Morgana, or Morgaine, Morgue la Fee, or La Fata Morgana, as she is variously termed in different tongues, was Morgan Maritime—the derivative from sea.  From her, or from some lingering old Keltic notion in ancient Italy, the Sicilian fisherman connects the towers and palaces painted on the surface of the Mediterranean with La Fata Morgana, the lady of the sea. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
