Name for yesterday- Agnes

Agnes is a female given name, which derives from the Greek word hagnē, meaning “pure” or “holy”. The Latinized form of the Greek name isHagnes, the feminine form of Hagnos, meaning “chaste” or “sacred”. The name passed to Italian as Agnese, to (Portuguese) as Inês, and toSpanish, as Inés.

It was the name of a popular Christian saint, Saint Agnes of Rome, a fact which encouraged the wide use of the name. Agnes was the third most popular name for women in the English speaking world for more than 400 years
