"Though I did not like my name as a child, I have come to love it! I am named for my grandmother who died before I was born. In her graduating class of under 30 students in the early 1920s, 3 girls had the name. F. Scott Fitzgerald's first girlfriend, Ginevra King, may have inspired him to write The Great Gatsby, though her name was spelled with an i rather an e after the G. The famous portrait of Ginevra DeBenci painted by Leonardo DiVinci has always been one of my favorites. There are other references in classic literature to the name. Also, while traveling in Italy in the 1980s, I waiter in Florence told me that both his mother and grandmother had the name. I have only known of one other person my age with my name, and though I have never met her, I've met people who knew her. We both graduated from the same college on the east coast in the early 1980s. I do have a distant cousin with the name. She lives in Florida and is quite elderly. She, too, was named after my grandmother.
People tell me how unique and beautiful my name is. I suppose the best thing about my name is that people don't forget it, and it's a great ice breaker! It does make me sad that it's basically a "dead" name." Mar. 20, 2015:
