Horace's Ode 1.11 is addressed to Leuconoe.
Heather McHugh translates that as Clarice (Don't ask, Clarice, we're not supposed to know...)
Can someone please explain to me how she arrives at Clarice?

Yes, Blanche is an old French name... It could work well here.
But sometimes translating names is strange... Just imagine... Heather in French is ... Bruyère...
