I commented, in a letter, a couple of years back, "Names are powerful. In a way, it could be said that a name becomes the shorthand expression of the very essence of who a person is. To use a name is to make present the depth and breadth of a person. A name is more than a name; it is who a person is." Over the last couple of months, I have had occasion to consider the thought of a number of women with really exceptional names. This post has no real purpose except to begin a collection of fantastic names. I begin with the women.
|Corrie Ten Boom - A protectress of the Jews from Nazis.|
|Carrie Nation - The intemperant leader of the temperance movement.|
|Flannery O'Connor - Unflinching Observer of the American South|
Who would you add?
