    The Arc de Triomphe was made specifically right before Napoleon I victory in Austerlitz in 1806 and took 30 years to build. Sadly Napoleon I would not live to see the creation finished. It’s name means triumphal arch. Assassination attempts were made on both Charles De Gaulle and Jacques Chirac from this location. Even though its name means triumph it has seen many times where Germans triumphally marched under it after winning battles.

    Name Meaning

    Like Jane and Joan , a medieval variant of Old French Je(h)anne. Towards the end of the Middle Ages this form became largely confined to Scotland. In the 20th century it became more widely used in the English-speaking world and enjoyed a period of great popularity, but it is now out of fashion. Among numerous well-known and influential bearers are the British novelists Jean Plaidy ( Eleanor Hibbert , 1910–93 ) and Jean Rhys ( Ella Gwendolen Rees Williams , 1894–1979 ), British actress Jean Simmons ( 1929–2010 ), and American-born actress Jean Seberg ( 1938–79 ). It is also found as a variant spelling of the masculine name Gene .
