Meaning & Origins

Originally an Old French form of Helen, but now generally regarded as an independent name. The Greek and Latin forms of the name had a long vowel in the second syllable, which produced this form (as opposed to Ellen) in Old French. In Arthurian legend, Elaine is the name of one of the women who fell in love with Lancelot. The name occurs in this form in the 15th-century English Morte d'Arthur of Thomas Malory. In the 19th century it was popularized in one of Tennyson's Idylls of the King (1859). Most of the characters in Arthurian legend have names that are Celtic in origin, although subjected to heavy French influence, and it has therefore been suggested that Elaine may actually be derived from a Welsh word meaning ‘hind’ or ‘fawn’.
211th in the U.S.
Scottish and English: habitational name from any of the various places so called. A Scottish place of this name near Longniddry is so named because it was held from the 12th century by a Norman family de Sey, from Say in Indre. Other places of this name, for example those in Cumbria, Devon, County Durham, Northumbria, and Yorkshire, are mostly named with Old English sǣ ‘sea’, ‘lake’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. One in Rutland seems to have as its first element a stream name, Sǣge (see Seabrook), or a personal name Sǣga. One in Kent is named with Old English seten ‘plantation’, ‘cultivated land’.
