- His parents gave him the name Polite but the civil servant wrote Hyppolite on the certificate (might have been slightly deaf, or might have insisted on writing Hyppolite because he did not know the name Polite (very very rare) and did not accept it , Hyppolite would have been a reasonable choice ).  In french Polite and Hippolyte sound the same.

Maybe he had to be given with the full version of the name rather than a nickname or shorten version to comply with Napolean's 1803 law restricting the names that could be given to babies to that of Saints name and names from ancient history. I assume that Hyppolite fell into the latter group!
Added: The law was eventually rescinded in 1993

I have been told by a better French speaker than me that you use the same expression 'préoccupé comme un chien avec un os' - is that true?

The appropriate expression is "comme un chien à son os".

Unfortunately it is not the original , only the reconstucted one ( The registers od Paris burnt in a fire in the 19th century).

Parish St Etienne DU MONT  ( written after DECES), the St Etienne du MONT church is Place ste Geneviève , in the 5th Arrondissement.
See Charles Villette's fiche matricule , we already heard about this area.
