Avalon Name Meaning & Origin
Here we say it AV-uh-lon, and it's associated with a lovely surf beach. I think this is a gorgeous name. Glastonbury did use to be an island on the Tor until the swamp was drained, and during prehistoric times it was a real island in the middle of a lake with a thriving culture. You can see that MZB based her vision of Avalon on a cross between the prehistoric site and the medieval one - it's an Avalon that never quite was, except in her imagination! I don't think her book actually is that historically accurate although based on real history , but it's a thumping good read.
