Lanzelot is a ♂ male name.
Lanzelot is a German variant of the name Lancelot, which is a name of the Arthurian legend. He is one of the greatest Knights of the Round Table and the lover of Guinevere. He was left at a lake by his mother as a child and was raised by Nimue, the Lady of the Lake. The etymologically origin of the Lanzelot is unknown. It may be of Old French, Germanic and Old High German origin, but as well could be derived from the early form Alanus-à-Lot.
Lanzelot could mean “servant” (from Old French “l’ancelot”) or “land” (from Old High German “landa”). Besides, Lanzelot could be derived from the Germanic name Wlancloth with roots in Old English “wlenceo” meaning “pride” and “loða” meaning “cloak”. Derived from Alanus-à-Lot, Lanzelot means “Alan of the Lot River”.
