Virginia Namesakes Comments :Virginia is a female name of Latin origin. Relatively popular in Europe; It is also very popular in the US. Its meaning: It comes from Virgo, virginis, virgineus, virgina virginum, virginal or virginalis and means "virgin, maiden or virgin". The Romans distinguished in the stages of the life of the woman first to the infans, infantis (equal to child to child, is what we call "baby"; in-fans means "do not speak"). He followed the puella, girl (female puer = child). The next stage was to Virgo (gene virginis.), Which was the lass not married; and the marriage was treated as "midwife". The meaning of Virginia is therefore the young girl in the prime of life, before marriage. The status of "unmarried woman" which became the real meaning for many centuries virginem (blank) had a great social importance. Some utilities (formerly linked to the temples), such as maintenance of the fire, were entrusted to virgins, i.e., women who renounced marriage to devote to these sacred ministries, who enjoyed the other part of an extraordinary social prestige. There is a beautiful and dramatic legend centered on the character of Virginia, dating back to 449 BC. This story was narrated by Livy and already in the Middle Ages as versionaría Chaucer in his Canterbury Tales . the name of Virginia became popular following its imposition on one of the first thirteen states of the American Union, precisely in honor of the "Virgin Queen" of England, who was as known Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, who reigned from 1558 to 1603. it was called so because it never agreed to marry. None of his relations curdled in marriage. Perhaps for this reason the name was very popular in the US than in other British nations. It was named Virginia entire region from the Atlantic coast of North America occupied ingleses. Luego extension of this State was reduced. While the growing importance of the State of Virginia helped popularize this name, I must say that as a proper name of woman existed since the early days of the Romans. Diminutives: 'Vir, Virgi, Viqui or Vicki. The names Virna and Ginger are occasionally referred to as variants of Virginia. The male equivalent is Virginius. - Elmer Goodrow
