Meaning & History

Probably a medieval Provençal form of Claremonde. According to a folk etymology it means "light of the world" from Old French esclair "light" and monde "world". In medieval legend Esclarmonde was a Muslim princess, lover of the Christian knight Huon de Bordeaux. It was borne by Esclarmonde de Foix (1151-1215), a princess and Cathar Perfecta from Occitania.
