Aristide Rougon, also known as Aristide Saccard, is a character from the French naturalist novelist Émile Zola's cycle "Les Rougon-Macquart: Histoire naturelle et sociale d'une famille sous le Second Empire".
Aristide Rougon appears as the second child of Pierre and Félicité Rougon in "La Fortune des Rougon" (The Fortune of the Rougons, 1871), in which he works as a political journalist. Then he goes to Paris and assumes the name of Saccard not to dishonour his family with his embezzlements in "La Curée" (The Kill, 1871-72). Later, he becomes the protagonist of "L'Argent" (Money, 1890-91), in which he fraudulently makes himself rich through speculation.
Aristide Rougon/Saccard embodies an opportunist rogue, a greedy man who changes his political affiliations according to who is in power and who doesn't hesitate to break the law to make himself richer.

Louis Armand Aristide Bruand was a French bourgeois by birth he became well known in his time of the late 1800's in the Montmarte district of Paris for his singing/performing with the stage name of Aristide Bruant. He will forever be remembered now as the friend and prominent subject of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's posters/paintings advertising 'Aristide Bruant' in lettering but with dramatic flair in fashion as well (ie red scarf, hat, high boots.)

Italian pronunciation:


"A" as in "Father." Roll your "R." The "I" in "Ri" is stressed to "EE." Again, for "Sti," the "I" must be stressed. "De" as in "Day," quite nearly. "Deyh." [noted -ed]

Not used at all, except on letters when there's a street after Aristide Briand.

Finally someone who knows the name Aristea - what I was named.

Though with the accent on the E and it being of Greek origins I would say it is pronounced more or at least how I pronounce my name phonetically.

Ah (like Father)-ri -STEH (like E in elephant)- Ah.

Everyone says it's pretty but don't try to pronounce it at all. Or butcher it to Ah- ris- tee (and sometimes Ah-ris-tee-aah).
