Where did my name come from?

Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.
March 3 — Do you share a first name with one of your female ancestors? Perhaps you were named for your great-grandmother, or your name follows a particular naming pattern. If not, then list the most unique or unusual female first name you’ve come across in your family tree.

I did not realize until I was an adult that my name came from the middle names of my mother's sisters, Leah Margaret Werner and Norma Lucille Werner. My Aunt Leah was 16 when I was born, and my Aunt Norma was 19. Leah was still in high school and Norma was working at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH. She said she did not get to see me until I was about six months old.
