La Belle et La Bête

Jean Marais and Josette Day as the original "La Belle et La Bête"

Coming out on Valentine's Day (at least in France) is a remake of Jean Cocteau's classic "La Belle et La Bête", made in 1946. In this version, the beauty if simply referred to as "Belle", which I find to a disappointment. There is so much naming potential there. Her sisters are called Adélaïde and Félicie, both lovely French names. What would you name the beauty? Something rosy perhaps? Or just extravagantly French?

My choice is Rosemonde, which is both rosy and French.
