Oonah is a girl’s name, believed to be a unique form of Agnes. Taken from the Greek word hagnos meaning “pure” and “holy,” St. Agnes, the patron saint of girls, is credited for making the name and its subsequent variants popular. One of the name’s most notable bearers is Oonah Keogh, an Irish woman who became the first female member of the Dublin Stock Exchange. She may have also been the first woman stockbroker anywhere in the world. Naming your little one Ooonah after these visionary women may inspire them to walk in the footsteps of greatness!
