  1. Her father and I just wanted something meaningful with a lot of history! Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands lived an interesting life and was a powerful ruler as well as the first woman billionaire. Williamina Fleming is also a very influencial Scottish astronomer that helped develop the designation system for star classifications. The name Wilhelmina is of German/Dutch origin and my family is German so that was also a nice connection. There are many spelling variations, but we opted for the traditional spelling
