Today I spotted a pretty French last name: Larmendieu. I liked it for many reasons. First, it sounds pretty much like an anagram of my mother's last name: Larnaudie. Its beauty lays, though, on the fact that it could be read both as "l'arme en Dieu" (the weapon in God) or "larme en Dieu" (tear in God). It's funny the things that you may encounter while you are waiting for somebody to open the door and you have nothing to read but mailboxes.
