System of Names to Replace Baptismal Names
Jean Alexandre Carney. 1794.
Report on names to substitute for Christian names, that is, the project on creating many different names that do not belong to any religion.
Read on the 26th of Vendémiaire of the third year [October 17, 1794] during a meeting of the Populist Society of Montpellier, by Jean-Alexandre Carney, a member of that Society.
If Earth and Apollo, through a gentle marriage,
Lavish you with their gifts, each day, O Frenchmen,
Do not be ungrateful, for from now on your names
Faithfully paint the story of the year.
Diversity, it’s my device.
