    In French Law. In a society en commandite an assocte en nom is one who is liable for the engagements of the undertaking to the whole extent of his property. This expression arises from the fact that the names of the assoctes so liable figure in the firm-name or form part of the societe en nom collectif. Ang. Fr. Merc. Law, 546.
