       That's quite interesting. Thank you.
       I have often thought that "bella" is a strange choice as a word meaning beautiful, since it is so close to "bellum" meaning war (in Latin). But I suppose that if war really is beautiful than it is fitting that the two words should be so alike.

      My full family name, Marcebella, which I have shortened for common usage to the more often-heard Marcella, translates to "the beauty of war"
      "Marc" is the feminine form of Mark in reference to the Roman God of War - "Mars" which also meant "war" itself, "bella" meaning beautiful.
      War is beautiful or The Beauty of War.
