Comments for LANCELOT:

In a Precious Moments Baby Names book that I recently bought, "Lancelot" is listed as being French, and meaning "Attendant". The ancient spelling is "Launcelot".

In director Antione Fuqua's 2004 film "King Arthur", the character of Lancelot was portrayed by Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd (pronounced Yo-an Griffith). Ioan was born on October 6th, 1973, to parents Gillian and Peter Gruffudd, in Cardiff, Wales.

In Marion Zimmer Bradley's novel "The Mists of Avalon" it is said that king Arthur's cousin is named Lancelet by the Saxons, and that it means "elf arrow".

There was a Victorian illustrator named Lancelot Speed (1860-1931), as well as a director of some silent films. Interestingly enough, he illustrated some Arthurian subject matter, too.

It seems like a pompous and pretentious name to choose today.

Much like Guinevere. I'm surprised his lover's name gets a pass from people and Lancelot with the convenient and mainstream nickname of Lance, does not.

He's also a character in Monty Python's musical Spamalot, which is a spin on Arthurian legend.

Lancelot Hogben was a notable zoologist and mathematician, but he was born in 1895. Not sure how well the name would fly today.

You have got to be kidding me. This name sounds pretentious and ridiculous, and it is forever attached to King Arthur. And imagine all of the immature and vulgar jokes. Please, save yourself some embarrassment and choose something else!

Before a competition last year my teacher was reading out the names of people in the other teams. One of these people was called Lancelot. When she read out his name the entire class burst out laughing. Somehow I think that's going to be the reaction of most people when modern day Lancelot's tell them their names.
