Why we chose Miranda

Albert and I deliberated for months and months over what we would name our baby if they were a girl. We finally decided on Miranda. One because it was lovely but not common and two because we both love Shakespeare and Miranda was Prospero’s daughter in The Tempest.

I have included a lovely painting by William Waterhouse it is really beautiful and romantic.

Miranda in The Tempest

“O, wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in’t!”
Miranda
William Shakespeare
The Tempest Act V, Scene I
