helper to the priest
Camille comes from the French Camilla, which gets its Latin heritage from Camillus, an old Roman surname. Back in the day, Camillus meant a boy who helped the priests during Mass. Though Camille is known as a girls' name in the US, it has been a boys' name even longer in French-speaking countries (think Camille Pissarro, the celebrated French impressionist painter). Helping keep the name alive are Camille Grammer of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
