Random History - Noble and Not So Noble Names

Louis the Stammerer

Here at the de Ville household we're all about history...

and right now we have a fascination with names from the Middle Ages.

Let's start with
Pippin II (d.714)
and his offspring.
We have

Louis the Pious

Louis the German

Louis the Stammerer

Louis the Blind

Louis the Child

Louis the Younger

Louis d'Outremer

and then we have

Charles the Bald

Charles the Fat

Charles the Simple/Straightforward

and of course

Charles the Great - Charlemagne

And now somebody that I know wants to be called
Stephanie the Sarcastic
Stephanie the Schadenfreudenous

And she shall!
