Camelot sounds, and looks, a lot like the French camelote.
Camelote, though, means something like trash or junk.
Camelot means just the opposite though:
Oxford Dictionary of English (2nd Edition revised):
(in Arthurian legend) the place where King Arthur held his court.
■ [as noun] (a Camelot) a place associated with glittering romance and optimism.
