信息来源:北外网院

你希望自己的女儿成为女强人,那么你可以用世界著名的成功女性的名字来给女儿取名,也许有一天,你的女儿也能改变世界!

Amelia 阿梅莉亚

Amelia Earhart,第一位独自飞越大西洋的女飞行员

Amelia is a name that flies high on the charts, thanks of course to legendary pilot Amelia Earhart. Earhart set a number of women’s altitude and speed records and also was the first aviator—male or female—to fly alone from Honolulu to Oakland, California and from Mexico City to Newark, New Jersey. Earhart famously disappeared while on a round-the-world flight in 1937, but her popular name doesn’t show signs of vanishing anytime soon.

Coco 可可

Coco Chanel,法国先锋时装设计师,香奈儿(Chanel)品牌的创始人。

Coco Chanel spent much of her childhood in French orphanages yet became one of the most celebrated fashion designers of the 20th century. Chanel’s glamour won fans on both sides of the Atlantic and her eponymous brand continues to be a major presence in fashion today. In recent years, fewer than 100 babies were named Coco annually in the US, but thanks to Chanel, the name will always be stylish.

Eleanor 埃莉诺

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt:美国第32任总统富兰克林?德拉诺?罗斯福的妻子,曾为美国第一夫人;美国首任驻联合国大使;主持起草了《世界人权宣言》   

Eleanor Roosevelt transformed the role of first lady into one of substance. She was outspoken on the issues of women’s and civil rights and continued her political work even after her husband, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, died in office. She was appointed as a delegate to the United Nations General Assembly and chaired the UN Commission on Human Rights. As her legacy lives on, so does her name, which has enjoyed an increase in popularity in recent years.

Elizabeth 伊丽莎白

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor:英女王伊丽莎白二世

Say the word “queen,” and for many Americans, just one person comes to mind—that royal across the pond, Queen Elizabeth II. She ascended to the throne at the age of 25 in the 1950s after her father’s sudden death and has been head of the monarchy ever since. In the US, the name Elizabeth has enjoyed its own long reign, ranked as one of the 30 most popular girls’ names for more than a century.

Margaret 玛格丽特

Margaret Thatcher:英国历史上第一位女首相

Known as the “Iron Lady,” Great Britain’s first female prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, used controversial economic strategies to help revive the UK’s flagging economy while going head to head with trade unions. Certainly no one can deny her pioneering achievements, or the popularity of her name. Its been one of the top 200 girls’ name in the US since the government started its record-keeping in the 1880s.

Sojourner 索杰娜

Sojourner Truth :美国著名非洲裔废奴主义者和妇女权利的倡导者;19世纪的废奴主义者和女权提倡者

Sojourner Truth escaped a life of slavery to become a prominent abolitionist as well as an early women’s rights activist. Born Isabella Baumfree, the devout Methodist changed her name to reflect her work as a preacher who traveled the country to advocate for her causes. Just a handful of parents name their daughters Sojourner in any given year, but students of American history will always know the name.

Sonia 索尼娅

Sonia Sotomayor:从纽约贫民窟走出的美国最高法院法官

Sonia Sotomayor made history as the first Hispanic justice and also as the third woman to join the US Supreme Court. The daughter of a factory worker, Sotomayor became a lawyer, a judge, and later, was appointed to the highest court in the land. Even though the last time her name reached new heights was in the 1970s, Supreme Court appointments are for life, so expect Sonia—the justice and the name—to stay relevant for decades to come.

Victoria 维多利亚

Victoria Woodhull:她是第一名在华尔街拥有股票经纪机构的女性

Activist Victoria Woodhull didn’t just promote women’s suffrage—she urged citizens to vote for her as the first female candidate for president in the United States in 1872. Another prominent Victoria, Britain’s Queen Victoria, was born into royalty, inherited the throne at age 18 and reigned over the Victorian era for more than 60 years. In the US, the name has held court as one of the top 100 girls’ names for decades.
