Theorema Egregium is Latin for remarkable theorem.

Note that the word egregium, literally meaning outside the flock, or possibly outside the realm, is the root of the English word egregious.

At one time, egregious meant outstandingly good, but the meaning has drifted over time, and now it means appallingly bad.
