Stella

“Your father, being clean besotted about you, must needs choose some fanciful name for you. Star-bright eyes you had, he said . . . and the starlight was bright on your face when I looked at you for the first time, so Stella it had to be, though the name don’t go well with Sprigg to my way of thinking.”

(Elizabeth Goudge, Gentian Hill, 1950)
