My name Caritat

Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas de Caritat, marquis de Condorcet  17 September 1743 – 28 March 1794), known as Nicolas de Condorcet, was a French philosopher, mathematician, and early political scientist.  Condorcet descended from the ancient family of Caritat.
My mother always told me we had a famous French name, but when I grew older my elder brother told me another story.
My mother was a foundling and nobody knew her name. She was taken care of by an elderly lady who named her Caritat because of  she being given to her. It is a Latin word meaning giving.
My mother did learn a lot of her new mother, who was a teacher in a Midwestern town. My mother went West with a bloke who was shot by some Injuns and that is why she became a teacher in the DS106 City.
