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


SPUMADOR.  Arthurian.  A horse belonging to king Arthur, meaning "the foaming one."

When the wroth western wind does reave their locks:
And underneath him his courageous steed,
The fierce Spumador, trode them downe like docks;
The fierce Spumador borne of heavenly feed;
Such as Laomedon of Phoebus race did breed.
(The Faerie Queene)

XIX. 8.  Heroes of old gave names to their horses; as Arion, Cyllarus, &c.  So Heroes in romance call their horses by particular names, Bayardo, Frontin, Brigliadore.  Hence (by way of ingenious irony) you find in Don Quixote how sollicitous he was to find a proper name for his horse, which at length he calls Rosinante.  The Prince's horse Spumador, seems to have received his name from his froth and foam, shewing his fiery nature.  See Virg. Æn. vi. 881.
    "Seu spumantis equi foderet calcaribus armos:"  The fierce Spumador born of heavenly feed, "Semine ab aetherio," Æn. viii. 281.  Upton. (The Works of Edmund Spenser, v.4, 1805)
