The Names of Persons ought to have a Sweetness in them – the modern novel had developed a fashion of names (such as Philander, Lysander, Lycidas or Damon for men or Clelie, Doris, Callista, Belinda or Amaryllis for women) which would preferably taste of Greek bucolic poetry. Standard "romantick names" did not only help to avoid authentic historical names where ancient Abessines and Tartars played the major roles. They had moreover become the signal of stories told for the moral examples they gave (rather than for the indecency with which they would otherwise expose those who had just committed the crimes and impudities related).
