Elaine

The Old French form of Helen associated with the figure in Arthurian legend who was the lover of Sir Lancelot and mother of Galahad. The legend was picked up by English poet Alfred Lord Tennyson who gave the tale a tragic ending. Today the "Seinfeld" television character played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus during the 1990s and the literary restaurant located in New York City comes to mind.
