crown or garland
Do you love the name Stephen but need a girls' name? Consider Stephanie, the feminine version of Stephen, which was derived from the Greek word stephanos (“crown” or “garland”). It was a huge hit in the 1970s and '80s and still has a decent presence on American babies’ birth certificates. If you want to be original, drop the second “E” (Stephani) or go with a “Y” ending (Stephany). Or change the “A” to another “e,” like Stephenie Meyer, the author of the “Twilight” series.
