French writer Gustave Flaubert called himself "Bourgeoisophobus" in a letter to Louis Bouilhet on December 26, 1852.

"Flaubert's mock dictionary became an inexhaustible hunting ground for bourgeoisophobes; he drew it from his sottisier, a lovingly gathered bouquet of inane opinions intended to supply material for the second volume of his last, unfinished novel, Bouvard and Pecuchet. ..." --The Bourgeois Experience: Victoria to Freud by Peter Gay
