I'm doing a book report on The Great Gilly Hopkins, Gilly's real name is Galadriel, but anyway. There is a character named Agnes Stokes, and I felt like putting this on.

Agnes is a wonderful, wonderful name with a rich literary history! In addition to Anne Brontë's use of the name in "Agnes Grey," Victor Hugo also chose Agnes to be the birth name of the lovely La Esmeralda in his classic book, "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame." More recently, Annie Proulx chose the name Agnes for Quoyle's great aunt in her Pulitzer Prize winning novel, "The Shipping News."

Agnes was also a character in Charles Dickens' classic "David Copperfield." She was virtuous and kind woman who loved David her whole life and eventually marries him. I associate the name with her character and love it.

Agnes is a lead character in Wilkie Collins' "The Haunted Hotel". Throughout the story she is praised for her beauty, innocence, and generosity. For some reason, reading that book, the name has left a rather sour impression with me.

Agnes Crandall, heroine of Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. This book is a romantic suspense novel and it is awesome! I really like this name especially after reading Agnes and the Hitman. I think the name is spunky, cute, fresh, feminine and not too girly. I like it!

This name was used on a hurricane which flooded eastern Pennsylvania in June 1972. Official damage estimates were about $3 billion, although recently the damage was estimated at $2.3 billion. This made Agnes the costliest hurricane at the time, surpassing Betsy of 1965, although it was later surpassed by other hurricanes.
