Inspirational Names of Outrageous Women

March 5, 2015 Linda Rosenkrantz

Why give your daughter a mere name when you can name her after someone she can look up to? Of course, that inspirational namesake may well come from your own family. But in honor of Women’s History Month, we’d like to suggest the names of a dozen daring, groundbreaking women who also happen to have noteworthy names you just might want to pass on to a little girl.

Beatrice Hinkle

Born in 1874, Beatrice Moses Hinkle was a pioneering feminist, the first American female physician to hold a public health position, then becoming one of the most important early women psychoanalysts, doing trailblazing work on the psychology and creativity of women. A member of New York’s feminist Heterodoxy Club, she pushed for women liberating themselves from their “psychic bondage” to men.
