    1931 · The Prehistoric Minnesota Woman

    Age 8

    The Minnesota Woman was the name given to the skeletal remains of a woman thought to be 8,000 years old found near Pelican Rapids. The bones were brought to the University of Minnesota for more study. Later, Dr. Albert Jenks identified them as the bones of a 15 or 16 year old woman. Scientists now recognize the girl as someone whose ancestors were Paleo-Indian and now her skeletal remains have been reburied in South Dakota, not available for further study.

    Name Meaning

    From an Old French personal name of Germanic origin, derived from leon ‘lion’ + hard ‘hardy, brave, strong’. This was the name of a 5th-century Frankish saint, the patron of peasants and horses. Although it was introduced into Britain by the Normans, Leonard was an uncommon name during the Middle Ages. It was revived in some areas towards the end of the 1400s, and in the 19th‐century became very popular. It is now also common as a Jewish name ( compare Leon ).
