From the Free Dictionary:

Quote:
o`blige´ment (ô`blīj´ment)
n. 1. Obligation.
I will not resist, therefore, whatever it is, either of divine or human obligement, that you lay upon me.
- Milton.


I think it means the same in French.

"Obligement" is the name of the magazine.
There no special sense to the word.

It's a long story why we have called our magazine "Obligement"...

Yes, and some would say that I was agreeing with your possibility of asking.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Here the real story :

One day in 1996, a friend and me would like to create a Amiga magazine.
It needed a name...

Normally, all magazines speaking about Amiga were named "Amiga Magazine", "Amiga Plus", "Amiga Power", "Amiga whatyouwant", etc.

And we would like to be original : do not put the word "Amiga" in the name. After some days of "brainstorming", none of the proposed names was satisfying.

At this time, another friend often employed the expression "Obligement" in the place of "C'est obligé" in French. Of course it was a grammatical error but a strange and funny expression.

And we choose this name because of his originality, his strangeness and his fun.
