The Name of the Day...

...belongs to Nova Pilbeam, an English actress who died at age 95.

Ms. Pilbeam was named after a grandmother who had come from Nova Scotia.

That's a novel way to choose a given name. If your parents had thought that way, what would your name be? (I might have been Taylor Street Tracy.)

Not to be outdone, Ms. Pilbeam married a man by the name of Penrose Tennyson. She is survived by a daughter, Sara. (I guess someone had to have a boring name.)
