Sagebrush Says:


This name makes me think of the part in The Princess Bride movie where the Man in Black and Inigo Montoya talk about what fencing defenses they are using, and the Man in Black says, “Naturally. But I find that Thibault cancels out Capo Ferro, don't you?" I am not ashamed.

So romantic, so European, and so impossible to use for non-French or European me IRL. Thibault is breathtaking though, everything from its pronunciation, written form and meaning.
