1888 · The Whitehall Mystery

The Whitehall Mystery has some ties to Jack the Ripper, the victim was female and had been dismembered. The arms were found first; the headless torso to which they belonged was found a month later. The rest of the body was never discovered and the mystery was never solved.

Name Meaning

English (of Norman origin): from the Middle English (Old French) personal name Mile + genitival or post-medieval excrescent -s, or from its other Old French form Miles, a derivative of ancient Germanic Milo, based on the element mil, from mel ‘good, generous’. The Old French oblique case form was Milon (see Milon 1). Compare Millen and Millson .

English: variant, with genitival or post-medieval excrescent -s, of Myhill , from a vernacular form of the Biblical name Michael . Miles Coverdale, the translator of the Bible, when in Germany, called himself Michael Anglus (‘the Englishman’).

Irish (Louth and Kilkenny): when not the same as 1 or 2, it is sometimes an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Maolmhuire, see Myles .
