From the English word "beauty", ultimately derived from Latin bellus, "beautiful".In some variations of the fairytale "Beauty and the Beast", the character of Belle is occasionally referred to as Beauty. In American author Bill Willingham's popular comic series 'Fables', published by DC comics imprint Vertigo, the two protagonists of 'Beauty and the Beast' are married and most commonly go by the names Beauty and Beast, respectively.
