your message was very interesting to me, however I am not sure that there is a conection in my case. My father's brother Edmond Cornelius was unable to have children, (I don't know if the cause of the problem was his or his wifes) so he asked my father that if I was a boy they would name me after him so that someone would carry on his name. As nature would have it I was a girl, so my parents gave me the name of his wife which was Harriet. It is very interesting to see your reply, because I have come across several women with the name of Harriet Light.
Thanks for your response,
Harriet Light
