The good doctor's original French title is yet to be ascertained.  In 1870 he was translated as Dr Sparadrap and this is the name used in Gänzl's synopsis, so it may be original.  There he is described as Raphaël's tutor.  In 2021, in a new English version by Anthony Baker for New Sussex Opera, he becomes Dr Elastoplast.
