Derived from the Latin words bis, meaning "two" and cornet, meaning "horn". According to French urban legend, this was the last name of the architect who built the doorways in the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral. In order to complete the architecture in one night before his deadline and make it look perfect, he sold his soul to the devil. Other people believe that he was the Devil himself, due to the meaning of the surname Biscornet.
