  • I don't think I've ever seen this plural anywhere except in the name Carmina Burana, or other musical titles.

    I do think that, if you had Julia Migenes-Johnson and Montserrat Caballe playing the role of Bizet's fiery heroine on alternate evenings and you saw them both in the pub, you'd refer to them as Carmens. But how likely is that, really?
