      *nod* It makes sense to me that way too. For what it's
      worth, my French dictionary gives 'fille - girl, daughter'
      and 'fillette - (little) girl'. It does seem to emphasise,
      as you said, youth, maybe naivete, which seems to
      characterse Utena in some ways. But then, I have only seen
      1-13, and that a couple of months back now. I need Animesoc
      to lend me the Black Rose arc!)
