French question

I am working on an 18th century orchestral suite, and once of the dance movements is entitled "Les Matelots," which is something I've never seen before in hundreds of movements. I looked it up on Google, and it gave me something like "The Ratings," which makes no sense. Another movement in this suite is entitled "Les Furies," which is a reference to the Greek gods. Could anyone offer a better reading of this word?

Thanks!
