Avalon is the name of the legendary island that is supposed to be a paradise in the Arthurian legends and where King Arthur was taken to after his death though some legends claim that he never really died and will one day return. Though the etymology of the name is uncertain, it’s been connected to Welsh afal meaning “apple” from Proto-Brythonic *aβal (apple) via Proto-Celtic *abalom (apple) deriving from a PIE root word.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
