This has been a big week for some notable women… for the first time, women will be honored on U.S. currency. Here’s how it’s going to break down:
- Abolitionist Harriet Tubman will be the new face of the $20 bill
- Suffragists Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul will be honored on the back of the $10 bill
If you’re looking for a great name that evokes strength and courage, consider one of these namesakes for inspiration. There’s something for everyone here:
- Harriet and Lucretia are both vintage names that I think are ready for revival. Harriet hasn’t been in the Top 1000 since 1970 and Lucretia hasn’t been there since 1977.
- Susan, Elizabeth, and Alice would be great for people looking for a traditional name and
- Sojourner is for people who are really looking for a name that stands out
Here’s an NPR article talking about the upcoming currency changes in case you want to read more.
Happy naming ♥ Amanda
