connu comme le loup blanc

The French expression “connu comme le loup blanc” translates literally to “known like the white wolf”. English meanings include:

  • well known
  • known by everybody

A French meaning on is simply “célèbre partout“, which means famous everywhere. Bien connu also mean well known. Here’s an example sentence:

Peter était connu comme le loup blanc sur toute l’île. Issu d’une famille riche, c’était un photographe qui se promenait pieds nus, même en hiver. Peter was known by everybody on the entire island. Coming from a rich family, he was a photographer who walked around barefoot, even during the winter.
