Saying that Diana is your favorite name is not a cop out. You are lucky to have been able to choose your name. :-) Excellent choice!

Fictional heroine - is it the Honor Harrington series? I've only read the first one, so not sure if she's an admiral in the later ones or not. :-)

I enjoyed reading your answers!
