6. Lady Emily Hargreaves (Lady Emily mysteries by Tasha Alexander)

Did Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie's parents have the worst time trying to agree on her name?

Fun list. I've only read Flavia de Luce, Hercule Poirot, and Sherry Baldwin mysteries, but I've been curious about Tasha Alexander's books for a while now, and you got me curious about the Vish Puri mysteries.

Many names here I don't know but one, Sherry Holmes Baldwin, my wife and I are big fans of. Great series.

Ah, what a list! I'd only add Maisie Dobbs

Stacy, she's thirty-fifth in line for the English throne (or somewhere thereabouts)...maybe they thought a longer name sounded more royal...

David, I heartily agree!

Green Girl, I am looking her up...
