Gobnait seemed to fit her because she's serious and deep. Gobnait has unexpected depth to it so I thought it could work. Plus, I don't expect to ever get to hear of it being used on a human. Ah, well.
Edelmira is another GP. My cousin is named Edel and I grew up thinking that it was an Irish form of Adele. But no. Apparently Edel was very popular in Ireland when my cousin was born. There was a nun or a nurse with that name that was greatly admired. But where did the name come from originally? Being a namenerd and doing a little digging I found Edelmira. That's my theory as to the origin of Edel and I'm sticking to it. It's gorgeous. Plus, I have a thing for Spanish variants of Germanic names. I picture ancient Gothic tribes moving into the Iberian penninsula. Fun.
