>>>The animal beaver in French is castor.
Really? That makes one wonder what 'Pollox' means--rooster? It's so hard to sound bad-azz when you're named 'beaver'.
Simone de Beauvoir was rather ironically named if she was 'See Beauty', non? Though 'see beauty' does not necessarily mean that we, the onlookers would see beauty when we look at her, rather that she views beauty through her own eyes.
No, thank god. That's even worse. It may be some archaic or regional form of 'garland'. Or it may mean nothing at all. I was never one of those women who was adamantly going to hang on to my maiden name; in fact I couldn't wait to ditch it, but I'm still saddled with it in all its Germanic glory. Nobody can ever spell it, even though it's only got 6 letters and is spelled exactly as it sounds.
