Introduction

In Search of Lost Time is a seven-volume novel (yes, you read that number right) written by a French novelist Marcel Proust. This huge novel is often considered to be his most important work, both because of its length and the theme it explores, a theme of involuntary memory. The novel follows the recollection of the narrator’s childhood and entrance into adulthood in the late 19th century and early 20th century aristocratic France. He is reflecting on the time he lost and how the world has no meaning anymore. It also explores the themes of separation anxiety, nature of art, and homosexuality.

In Search of Lost Time Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you have tackled the colossal novel In Search of Lost Time, you probably figured out that it has so many characters that it becomes hard to keep track of all of them. However, there are a few who stand out among others, and paint the picture of aristocratic life in France. Some of these characters can serve as inspiration when it comes to naming your dog, and they surely have an extensive back story you can tell to your friends and acquaintances from the dog park, and maybe inspire them to start reading Marcel Proust’s works. However, you can always start with the most obvious option, and that is the name, Marcel, after the famous French author who actually wrote this novel.

After that, you can turn to other characters that make this novel what it is. For example, the name Charles will probably be the first one that comes to mind, after Charles Swann, a family friend of the narrator’s family, who is also the main character in the movie adaptation of the novel called Swann in Love. Another fantastic name is Bathilde, after Bathilde Amédée, the narrator’s grandmother who influenced him immensely or Odette, after Odette de Crécy, a beautiful courtesan in Paris and later Charles’ wife.
