Planning 2nd child. First DD has a family name.

If we have another girl I would like her to be named after someone who did something special or someone who who is admired for her achievements.

Any ideas?

Is thre a particular area of achievement that you and your family would be interested in..

Sport, Music, Health, Religion, Politics, Social Reform...??

I guess there's no actual area but I guess I would like the woman to be strong and independent. Maybe politics and social reform if I had to narrow it down. Someone who was admired and looked up to for her achievements.

Am I rambling now?
