Aramis is quite an exception among the musketeers since his given name is told once (and only once) by Dumas : he is christened René. In The Three Musketeers he is known as Chevalier D'Herblay. In Ten Years Later he is a Jesuit and became Monsieur l'abbé D'Herblay. When he comes back from exile in The Vicomte de Bragelonne, he is a spanish noble and known as Duke of Alameda.
Aramis loves intrigues and women, which fits well with prejudices of the time regarding Jesuits and abbots (before the French Revolution, abbots benefited the incomes of an abbey, but where not required to follow the monasetry rules - which Aramis understands well).
The fictional Aramis is loosely based on the historical musketeer Henri d'Aramitz.
