What does his name translate it as in French?

Post  Grape on Mon 15 Aug 2016 - 6:18

I'm sorry by a topic without the relation really with Magic Worlds. Embarassed

I read the novel of "the bell of Notre Dame".
The original title of this novel is "NOTRE-DAME DE PARIS".
A chief character of this novel is an ugly hunchback man called Quasimodo.
Quasimodo is a meaning of "the failures" in French.
However, it is "白衣の天日" when I translate Quasimodo from French into Japanese and is translated as "Low Sunday".

What does "Quasimodo" actually translate it as in French?

Thanks,
Grape

In fact "Quasimodo" is the name of a character in the novel "Notre Dame de Paris" by Victor Hugo.

"Quasimodo" is the term borrowed from two Latin words that are leading the speech of the preast during  the Mass of the first Sunday after Easter.

Around the age of 4 years, abandoned by his parents because of his physical deformities, the boy is rescued by the priest Claude Frollo to which he devotes entirely. The name given to him by Frollo was "Quasimodo" or "Low Sunday" as Frollo had found him that day.

So, Quasimodo is latin terms of liturgy (with a capital Q): Sunday of Quasimodo = The Sunday after Easter (Low Sunday).

I hope that can help you Grape alien

Thank you for doing the commentary that is very kind, and is careful!! Very Happy
I understood it very well. Very Happy
There was not it in the meaning of "the failures". Shocked

This novel was made an animation movie by Walt Disney.
According to this movie, the name of Quasimodo meant "the failures".

Thanks,
