John Calvin (1509-1564), Protestant frontrunner, produced Jean Caulvin, the surname related to French Chauvin (compare chauvinism), from Latin calvus "bald," from PIE *kle-wo- "bald."
The number of questions which Calvin failed to ask or eluded by absolutely irrational expedients frees him from any taint of modern rationalism.
