Don't know. I have two editions of Cyrano de Bergerac, one a translation, the
other in French. I can't read French, and have only read a few bits of the
translation so far -- it seemed interesting; if it was a busy day, that might
be why I didn't read the whole thing then. Whatever the case, I haven't read
enough to understand E. Rostand's connection to the various suggested names
this script. Please, can you explain?
