Women (& Wedding Dresses) that Inspire ~ Help Celia Grace Name a 2017 Dress Style

Our amazing friends at Celia Grace recently asked Black Sheep Bride readers to help them name one of their new 2017 fair trade wedding gowns! 
 
So we want to know – who inspires you? Celia Grace recently released their 2017 wedding dress collection and is looking for help naming one of their stunning new dress styles in honor of an amazing woman.
 
Celia Grace connects women around the world – brides get a stunning wedding gown that makes them look and feel more beautiful than ever before – and dressmakers works in safe conditions for fair pay so they can take their kids to the doctor and send their girls to school.
 
By naming each dress after an inspiring woman Celia Grace continues this cycle of building positive connections between women around the world. Some existing styles include Amelia (Earhart, pilot), Rachel (Carson, environmentalist), , Eleanor (Roosevelt, humanitarian), and more.

The 2017 collection features fine silks and vintage-inspired laces, illusion necklines, keyhole backs and a few dresses that convert from long to short and two organically-dyed colorful dresses.

What we need to do is brainstorm as many inspiring women as possible after whom this dress can be named.  Public figures (past or present) are best but all suggestions are welcome.
 
The dress we are naming is this gorgeous open back lace gown shown throughout this post. 
Refer to these images and allow your creative juices to run wild with all the possible name choices! So what name would you select?
