I was on Facebook discussion this morning about female programmers when I brought the name ‘Ada Lovelace‘. Somebody commented on how it sounded like a name that Donald Trump might have paid hush money to. He had a point. ‘LOVELACE’. Got me thinking, which then led to, of course, some intense Googling.

Wow! Intriguing. So, there are two competing theories as to the origins of the name (as you can clearly see above): lawless and ‘short on love’. I go with the forner.

I did not know that Ada was Lord Byron’s legitimate daughter and was born Ada Byron.

The Lovelace came from her marriage, but not initially. Her husband, to begin with, was William, 8th Baron King. He was later made Earl of Lovelace — Ada a descendent of the then extinct Barons Lovelace. What a story. Kind of sad also. She died from uterine cancer, aged 36. Same age her father had died.

Well, it definitely was worth looking into. I learned so much.
