Oklahoma is a melting pot and that's especially clear when you dig into the naming of many cities and towns. Native American languages are a popular source of names, but so are the folks who worked on the railroads that came through before statehood. But one Oklahoma city's name is quite legendary—literally, it's part of the legend of King Arthur. In fact, the city's name was drawn from a series of poems by Alfred, Lord Tennyson about the old sword-puller.

What is the name of the city and which cycle of poems helped give it its name?
