Fiz uma pesquisa na wikipedia sobre alguns nomes e eis os resultados:
“Dulcinea is a
fictional character who is referred to (but does not appear) in Cervantes‘ novel Don Quixote. Seeking after the traditions of the knights-errant of old, Don Quixote finds a true love whom he calls Dulcinea. She is a simple peasant in his home town, but Quixote imagines her to be the most beautiful of all women. At times, Quixote goes into detail about her appearance, though he freely admits that he has never seen her. On a side note, Sancho Panza pretends that a rather ugly country woman is Dulcinea so he does not have to go find her. Quixote believes this as Sancho insists that she is under a spell. Later in the story, Quixote dreams of what he thinks Dulcinea looks like and the Duke and Duchess procure a young boy to dress up as her. This is the closest Quixote ever gets to seeing his love.
In the
Spanish of the time, Dulcinea means something akin to an overly elegant “sweetness”. In this way, Dulcinea is an entirely fictional person for whom Quixote relentlessly fights. To this day, a reference to someone as your “dulcinea” implies hopeless devotion and love for her.”
“Firdous e Bareen (or ????? ???? in Persian and Urdu) was the name of the garden made by Hassan-i-Sabah and his band of Nizari Ismaili Shiite fugitives (the Hashshashin) in the Elburz mountains of Northern Iran, imitating paradise or heaven. This paradise was furnished with all luxuries of life, even a rivulet of wine and was used to recruit assassins to Hassan’s militia. The person to be recruited was drugged to simulate a “dying” to later have them awaken in a garden flowing with wine and served a sumptuous feast by virgins. The supplicant was then convinced he was in Heaven and that Sabbah was a minion of the divinity and that all of his orders should be followed, even to death.”
