Meaning & History
Possibly derived from Greek πάλαι (palai) "long ago, in days of yore" and μῆδος (mêdos) "plans, schemes" (itself from the verb μηδομαι (medomai) "to think, to plan"). In Greek mythology Palamedes was the son of Nauplius, king of Nauplia, and Clymene, a Cretan princess. In medieval Arthurian tales, this was the name of a Saracen Knight of the Round Table.
