Meaning:Mother of King Arthur
Ygraine is the French equivalent of Igraine in Middle English, Igerna in Latin, and Eigr in Welsh. Whichever spelling you gravitate towards, what’s more important is that history remembers this feminine name as being borne by the mother of King Arthur, whose beauty was said to have surpassed that of all the women of Britain. Since there isn’t any substantial evidence behind its meaning, it’s apparent that societal roles have come to define this name. So, by picking Ygraine for your little one, you can inspire them to break free and add more personality and dimension and colour to this moniker!
