Sir Gawain was a knight of King Arthur's round table. In the oldest sources, the name is spelled, "Gwalchmei." The latter is a mouthful, but a young man named Gawain sounds very noble, like he's the kind of kid who will rescue one of the girls in the class when she's stuck at the top of the monkey bars and doesn't care if the other boys make fun of him for it.
