Nah. I would be hard-pressed if I were asked to come up with such things in French.

Just new suggestions to get the "brainstorming" going...

Some descriptions in English (from A "The Man in the Iron Mask" film site but that way' you'll get the idea if you're not familiar with these characters...):


Quote:
The Musketeers are defenders of the French crown, a high powered army of loyal soldiers who possess a talent to wield a sword better than anyone to protect their sovereign ruler. D'Artagnan, is the most loyal and says he will not betray his King, no matter how ruthless his methods are, somehow hoping his majesty will become a better man. Athos, Porthos and Aramis are past their prime and have retired to a more quiet life and decide to replace the King with his twin brother, the man in the iron mask who the King perceives as a threat to his power. They are motivated to overthrow the King when one of them is unknowingly deemed to be a suspicious traitor to the crown.

Their King, Louis XIV of France, is a tyrant, watching his people starve while he lives in the seductive life of luxury, and is a true law unto himself.

D’Artagnan, was really Charles de Batz-Castelmore, and hailed from Gascony, just as Dumas writes. He took the name of Sieur of Artagnan from a property his mother's family owned. He left Gascony not in 1625, as in the novel, but in 1640. He is brave, noble, ambitious, crafty, and intelligent.

He had a distinguished career and he rose through the ranks to great distinction until he died in service in 1673 at the Siege of Maestricht.

Athos, Porthos and Aramis are also based on real Musketeers. Porthos was Isaac de Portau, a member of the Capitaine des Essarts's company of the King's Guards until 1643, and then a Musketeer with D'Artagnan. Aramis was Henry d'Aramitz, and Musketeer from 1640 on--we know little of him beyond that. Athos was Armand de Sillegue, Seigneur d'Athos et d'Autevielle, also related to Treville. He was a King's Musketeer who died in Paris in 1643, but little is known beyond that--there is some indication on his death certificate that he died as a result of a duel.

Athos is something of a father figure to D'Artagnan. He is older than his comrades, although still a young man. Athos is distinguished in every way--intellect, appearance, bravery, swordsmanship--yet he is tortured by a deep melancholy, the source of which no one knows.

Porthos, the third of the Three Musketeers, is loud, brash, and self-important. He is extremely vain, and enjoys outfitting himself handsomely; but for all that, he is a valiant fighter and a courageous friend.

Aramis is a young Musketeer, one of the great Three. Aramis is a handsome young man, quiet and somewhat foppish. He constantly protests that he is only temporarily in the Musketeers, and that any day now he will return to the Church to pursue his true calling.

Yes. That's what we're going to do. After we have decided on a slogan first though.

Anyway, someone would have to come up with the design.
