Reply to: The name Vairette by YourSensei
Vair is a French word meaning soft leather (kid) and I was taught that the original Cinderella story by Perrot was really about a kid slipper (vair) and not a glass slipper (verre). "-ette" is a diminutive and so my guess would be "little soft soft leather/kid". Very tactile!
