Comments for HÉLOÏSE:

Heloise was the name of a famous medieval writer/philosopher and nun. She is best known, however, through her ill-fated relationship with her mentor, Abelard, and the letters that survive from their lifelong correspondence.

Heloise is the name of a columnist/author/magazine editor, who helps people with household difficulties. As far as I know, she goes by only her first name.

Mercedes Heloise, my daughter's name, the most beautiful one. Both names are in Le Comte de Monte Cristo. Read it!

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (a famous philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment) wrote a novel called "La Nouvelle Héloïse" (the new Heloise). There isn't a character named Héloïse in this novel but the plot takes its inspiration from Héloïse and Abélard's story.

Heloise is an adorable dog in Dodie Smith's 'I Capture the Castle'. They also have a cat named Abelard.

This is a very nice French name, although I don't think it would be at all nice in English, except maybe among French Canadians and in Canada in general it would be acceptable. :-)

Héloïse de Villefort is the evil second wife of Gérard de Villefort and the stepmother of Valentine in Alexandre Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo. She goes on a poisoning spree, killing several people, culminating with her own son. (I still like the name though.)
