Of uncertain origin, probably from Welsh Danbrann which was possibly derived from Middle Welsh dawn "gift" or dwn "brown, dark" and bran "raven". Dindrane is historically the sister of Perceval, one of King Arthur's knights. Frequently unnamed in the grail romances and sometimes simply known as the "Grail Heroine", she is named as Dindrane in the Old French Grail romance 'Perlesvaus'.
