Today’s Final Jeopardy 5/23/2023 (Shakespeare’s Characters) – Tuesday, May 23 2023

Both of the names of these 2 lovers in a Shakespeare play come from latin words for “Blessed”

Today’s Final Jeopardy Answer – Tuesday, May 23 2023

The Final Jeopardy Answer is: Beatrice and Benedick

Final Jeopardy Explanation – Tuesday, May 23 2023

Beatrice and Benedick, both main characters in Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” have names rooted in Latin words connected with “blessed.”

The name Beatrice is derived from the Latin “Beatrix,” signifying “one who brings happiness” or “the bringer of joy,” originating from the Latin verb “beare,” which translates as “to bless.”

Conversely, Benedick is sourced from the Latin “Benedictus,” meaning “blessed.” This name stems from the Latin verb “benedicere,” which implies “to bless” or “to praise highly.”

In the drama, the pair is known for their sharp dialogue and shared distaste for love and marriage. However, their friends discern an underlying fondness between them and conspire to dupe each of them into believing that the other is secretly in love with them. Despite their initial antagonism, this ploy leads to them unexpectedly confessing their love for each other.
