Fearless Females Blog Post: March 3 - Names and Naming Patterns


March 3 — Do you share a first name with one of your female ancestors? Perhaps you were named for your great-grandmother, or your name follows a particular naming pattern. If not, then list the most unique or unusual female first name you’ve come across in your family tree.


My name “Lisa” is a form of Elizabeth, which was my paternal grandmother’s name. My mother wanted to name me “Holly” but my aunt who is also my godmother suggested the name “Lisa” because it was a popular name at the time. Holly is a nice name, but I'm glad that my mother listened to my aunt--because I like my name.
