RE: Another Beauty & the Beast Movie

That's a good question, as very few version actually name the prince once released from beast form. Beauty might have named him Hephaestus, after the Greek god. He was the strongest and forged Zeus' thunderbolts. He was 'deformed', though, and lame. Aphrodite was married to him as a form of punishment, actually. This is all from ancient memory of school notes, though, so if I'm wrong, please don't hesitate to correct me on any of this. But Beauty might have just given him a name she liked, to avoid insult.
