(LANCELOT) (lanzo) (lance) (lancearius)

There is a Lancelot, in Welsh mythology, as well as being one of the “knights of the round table” in the Arthurian legend. Lancelot is also the Old French diminutive form of the Germanic name Lanza. Lancelot although is often represented with a sword, he is, in fact, a spearman, a lancer. Indeed the term in Latin is “lanciarius / lancearius.” This name is of Welsh, Old French, Germanic, and Latin origin and comes from the roots: (LANCELOT) (LANZO) (LANCE) and (LANCEARIUS).
