  • This "ormonde" from Lolita, is in French "J'ai toujours admiré l'oeuvre ormonde du sublime Dublinois," and seems to refer to James Joyce's Ulysses, where the barmaid at the Ormonde Hotel in the Sirens chapter deserves admiration. Ormonde besides being an ok word for a hotel, has a good pun in French as hors monde, ie beyond the world.
