French term or phrase: mon mignon Thon
Any idea what mon mignon Thon means here? "My sweet Thon" doesn't really seem to make any sense in the context. Is this an archaic idiom I am unaware of?

Un jeune pâtre écrasé sous ses brebis exsangues a détourné de son lit mon mignon Thon souillé par l'humaine folie.
