Okay, if I'm remembering all the stuff my 8th grade English teacher practically forced down my throat when I had to read A Tale of Two Cities and he gave us background info on the French Revolution, the Bourgeois were the middle class who revolted against the rich and eventually became the rich. Anyone think this could somehow connect to Chloe?
Yup, you are correct! Chloe’s last name is definitely an allusion to that class of people. The dictionary definition of “Bourgeois” is: “of or characteristic of the middle class, typically with reference to its perceived materialistic values or conventional attitudes”
Minus the history lesson, “bourgeois” is a shorthand for the elites, usually people who profit off the work of others. If you DO want the history lesson, the wikipedia page is here.
