Meaning of the baby name ANTOINETTA.

  

ANTOINETTA.  Variant form of Latin Antonetta (q.v.), possibly meaning "inestimable."  Usage: Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Slovakia, Slovenia.

    BOURIGNON, ANTOINETTA, a fanatic, b. at Lisle, in 1616.  She came into the world so very deformed that a consultation was held in the family some days about stifling her as a monstrous birth.  But if she sunk almost beneath humanity in her exterior, her interior seems to have been raised as much above it; for at 4 years of age she not only took notice that the people of Lisle did not live up to the principles of Christianity which they professed, but was thereby disturbed so much as to desire a removal into some more Christian country.  Having an aversion to matrimony, she twice eloped from home to avoid it.  The reading of mystical works inflamed her imagination, and she believed that she had visions and ecstatic trances, in which she was commanded to restore the true evangelical spirit in the world.  She wandered about incessantly, and was expelled from many countries; but she made numerous proselytes, among whom were men of abilities.  D. at Franeker, in Holland, 1680.  Her reveries fill 22 volumes. (Cyclopedia of Universal Biography, Godwin, 1854)
