“lame and pitiful” indeed, but it often makes me laugh in spite of the tragedy involved.

Elle Beau, besides the somewhat obvious pun in English, in French sounds like some kind of double entendre or l’ambiguïté. One might say “She is beautiful — Elle est belle” or “He is hansome — Il est beau” but Elle Beau raises an eyebrow; and so is therefore a good name for one who definitely has rejected standard sexual relationship narratives. À plus tard!
