Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.
Today’s name comes from 14th C France. We have one Middle French example from the end of the century, and haven’t found anything else like it. If you have any thoughts about its origin, or have other examples, please share in the comments!
