40 Names for Your Plucky Heroine


Today we're going to be focusing on a style I like to call "plucky heroine"; names for girls who are mystery-solvers, whose favorite toy is a microscope and favorite stories feature Sherlock Holmes and Watson. Think Harriet the Spy, Nancy Drew or Flavia de Luce. What do you think of this sort of style? It's personally one of my favorites, and I love the mix of quirky, studious and vintage!
