I know, I know, surnames for girls is kind of taboo in the naming world. I do understand some of the hate, but I also think there are some exceptions. I also love it when the maiden name is used, either as a first or middle. If my own surname sounded nice enough for a name, I would use it in a heartbeat; unfortunately it doesn't. But here are some that I think wear especially nice on little girls.
WAMPAS Baby Stars of 1928 The WAMPAS Baby Stars was a campaign that ran from 1922 to 1934, which usually honored thirteen actresses, and was sponsored by the United States Western Association of Motion Picture Advertisers. The actresses that were chosen were thought to be just on the cusp of stardom, and those that got the honor of an award got extensive coverage in the media and went to the "WAMPAS Frolic" party. I find this whole thing extremely fascinating, and wanted to post the names of the girls chosen. 1922: Marion Aye, Helen Ferguson, Lila Lee, Jacqueline Logan, Louise Lorraine, Bessie Love, Kathryn McGuire, Patsy Ruth Miller, Colleen Moore, Mary Philbin, Pauline Starke, Lois Wilson, and Claire Windsor. 1923: Eleanor Boardman, Evelyn Brent, Dorothy Devore, Virginia Brown Faire, Betty Francisco, Pauline Garon, Kathleen Key, Laura La Plante, Margaret Leahy, Helen Lynch, Derelys Perdue, Jobyna Ralston, and Ethel Shannon. 1924: Clara Bow, Elinor Fair, Carmelita
Tilda Swinton as Jadis in "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" I have an admission to make. I love evil Queens. I've always liked the villains, both male and female, and often find them to be more interesting, especially when it comes to storylines. Some of these aren't exactly Queens, but do fit into the archetype. So here is a list of names, taken from evil Queens from literature, television, movies, and real life. Regina - Once Upon a Time Grimhilde - Snow White Isabella - Isabella 1st of Spain Claudia - Snow White: A Tale of Terror Arpazia - White as Snow Elspeth - Snow White: The Fairest of Them All Jadis - The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe Narissa - Enchanted Dorothea and Hekatah - The Black Jewels Trilogy Bathsheba - The Bible Ravenna - Snow White and the Huntsman Ivi - Fairest Anne - Snow: A Retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves Rodmilla - Ever After Alice - The Grimm Brother's Snow White Clementianna - Mirror Mirror A
