The first thing that came to my mind before I finished your poll was Amelia as well! Love her, love the name. Plus there are soooo many wonderful nicknames you can use as well. That’s all I got because everyone else made great suggestions of some of the ones I was thinking of. GL

I’m a history geek too! I have two kids named Elizabeth and Clars but both of those names have already been suggested. I like Amelia, but I’d say for you, to go with women who inspire you, don’t name your child after just anyone in history, but someone that you love.

Also suggestions:
Susan (B. Anthony)
Jackie (Kennedy)--or any other First Lady
