Other masculine nouns, and all feminine nouns, have their nom.Elements of Gaelic Grammar
French, "name" (9c.), from Latin nomen (see name (n.)). Used in various phrases, e.g. nom de guerre (1670s), name used by a person engaged in some action, literally "war name;" nom de plume (1823), literally "pen name;" nom de théâtre (1874) "stage name." "Nom de plume is open to the criticism that it is ridiculous for English writers to use a French phrase that does not come from France" [Fowler].
