Etymology of the name MABONAGRAIN.
Meaning of the baby name MABONAGRAIN.


MABONAGRAIN.  In the Arthurian romance Erec and Enidè, sir Mabonagrain is a nephew of King Evrain.  It is probably a contracted form of Mabon ab Grain, "Mabon son of Graine."

    In the episode of La Joie de la Cour in Erec, the knight Mabonagrain defeats many an opponent in the defence of his lady's mist-enclosed garden; he dwells ever with his amie, and is not the recipient of only her occasional favor... (Studies in the Fairy Mythology of Arthurian Romance, Paton, 1903)

    The knight who guards the enchanted place in Erec is called Mabonagrain.  Paris has noted the fact that there are many compound Celtic names which have Mabon for the first part and a second name joined to the first by ab (= the son of), and has suggested that this might be such a form as Mabon ab Grain (?)... (Studies and Notes in Philology and Literature, v.4, 1895)
