Arts and culture
The community was named after Galahad, of Arthurian legend. Of interest, the roads in Galahad have been given names pertaining to Arthurian legend. The hamlet has roads named Merlin Street, Sir Lancelot Street (which perhaps not surprisingly intersects with Guinevere Avenue) and King Arthur Street. Other road names include "Lady Helen" and "Lady Vivian," which are figures not clearly connected with Camelot.
