A Blog For Name Lovers Everywhere
Recently I watched a mini series called Labyrinth based off the archaeological mystery novel written by Kate Mosse. It was fun to watch but what was more exciting to find out was the names…Considering that it is set in the Middle Ages and present-day France. And they don’t disappoint.

Audric | Medieval French form of Aldric derived from the elements ald ‘old,’ and ric ‘ruler, power.’
Guilhem | Occitan form of William meaning ‘will, desire’ and ‘helmet, protection.’
Murviel | Derived from Latin ‘muri‘ meaning ‘walls’ and vituli ‘old man,’ combined Murviel means ‘old walls.’
Sajhe | Occitan meaning “wise one.”

Esclarmonde | It has two possible meanings: eclair de monde ‘light of the world.’ Or eclair ‘lightning.’
