"When I was growing up, our neighbor was named Capitola Greer. She was called "Cap" sometimes. She was born in the 1910's, I'd guess. I have never known anyone else with this name but I think it's interesting. Her son, Lynn Greer, was a long-time state representative in northwest Alabama." Feb. 9, 2022:
"My great-grandmother's middle name was Capitola, and she was born in 1898. She hated that name, but I always thought it was a cool name and I would tease her about it. She would always use her first name (Anna) and put a "C" for her middle name. I love reading these stories as I loved my grandma so very much and was always intrigued by her middle name."

"My grandmother's name was Capitola, she was born in 1924. She went by Pat. She was named after the book character in The Hidden Hand, Or, Capitola the Madcap. My grandpa had the book and passed it along to the grandchildren. My sister has read it and said the main character was very strong and rambunctious. This page is a reminder that it's my turn to read it! Copies can be found on E-bay, and it looks like it's even available on Kindle." Feb. 19, 2021:

"My name is Capitola. I was named after my great-great-grandmother. Most people don't even try to pronounce my name, even though it's pretty self explanatory. I can't even begin to talk about how people have spelt my name before. You would pronounce Capitola just like "Capitol" and then "uh" at the end. I have never met someone with the same name as me, though it would be awesome to do so! I'm 18 years old and I've had SO many people ask me what my name means. I've never found what it has meant until I got on this site. I've had someone who went to college for name meanings not know what my name means. It's very unique and I like it. I go by Cappie, unless someone is being stern with me, then it's Capitola. My full name is Capitola Rose Robbins." Mar. 24, 2014:

It not just a name, it is a title. The name gives strength, direction and adventure. I have been called by both Capi and Tola. I love my name!" Dec. 11, 2012:

"My "aunt" was named Capitola in 1908, after a character in a book that her father was reading. I'm pretty sure it's the book referred to in the 2/13/11 comment. She went by Capi for most of her life, and I was named Capi after her." Sep. 3, 2011:

"My Middle name is "Capitola" and It came from my Grandmother's first name "Capitola". I was born in 1980. This name was given to my Grandmother by my Great Grandmother. She found the name in a book she read that was published in 1895 call " Hidden Hand E.D.E.N South Worth. The girl portrayed a tomboy for that era. The actual meaning of this name I haven't been able to find except from the Latin word Capitolium ?? I think is how its spelled, anyway its means Temple of Jupiter ? Just thought it was some interesting information." Jan. 14, 2015:

"The Hidden Hand, Or, Capitola the Madcap
By E.D.E.N. Southworth
The name "Capitola" comes from the feisty, cross-dressing heroine of this 1859 adventure novel. ("E.D.E.N. Southworth was one of the most popular and prolific writers of the nineteenth century and her Capitola Black, or Black Cap... was so well-loved that the book was serialized three times between 1859 and 1888 and was dramatized in forty different versions... The pace is fast, the action wonderfully unbelievable. This is escape literature at its nineteenth-century best, with a woman at its center who makes you feel strong, daring and reckless." -- Erica Bauermeister, 500 Great Books by Women)" Feb. 13, 2011:
"My mother's name was Ruth Elizabeth Capitola Malaney. I was told she was given the name Capitola by her father from a book he was reading regarding an Indian Princess with this name. Does that sound logical?

"My name is spelled without the i. My Mother named me and died soon after my birth, so there was not information on how it would be spelled. I find a lot of names with either Captola or Capitola. I have a book named the "perils of Capitola". Very hard to read as it was written many, many years ago." Sep. 20, 2009:
