Brittany is actually the proper English translation (yes, it is an
exception) for Bretagne.
And Bretagne has not become Loire-Atlantique, either. Rather, the
pre-1792 territory of Bretagne is now organized in two zones:
Basse-Bretagne et Haute-Bretagne, which are themselves administratively
shared by nine "Départements", one of which is Loire-Atlantique.
There was never any such a place as Daborel. It is another one of
Tangay's made-up place names.
Abbaretz, the proper birth place of Louis Truchon is, you are correct,
in the département de Loire-Atlantique.
