Meaning of the baby name GALIENE.

  

GALIENE.  Arthurian.  The name of a noble woman.  It is the feminine form of French Galien (q.v.), meaning "still, serene, calm."

    There are many descriptions of tournaments in the French romances, which were translated for the Netherlanders of the thirteenth century, and have come down to us.  One from Ferguut may here find a place.
    Galiene, the beautiful, noble lady, wished to enter into matrimony.  King Arthur, at whose court in Cardoile she lived, determined to send "Servants, heralds into all lands / And have them cry a tournament," as the phrase ran, "outside of Cardoile on that sand."  The knight who, in this tournament, should vanquish Arthur's knights, might marry Galiene.  Arthur "had letters made and had them carried to all countries: all that were hunting after honour, they were to come to the tournament."  The knights hastened from all directions... Ferguut was adjudged the victor, obtained the prize, "And had Galiene the beautiful / With great delight all his life long." (History of the People of the Netherlands, Blok, v.1, 1898)
