Name:  Agatha

First letter:  A

Meaning:  (pronounced A-guh-thuh) From The Greek Meaning Good.

History of name: 
Doesn't appear in the Christian Bible. However, most famous was the 3rd century martyr. Having incurred the wrath of a consul named Quintian after she refused his advances, she was handed over to a brothel keeper. When she emerged from this captivity uncorrupted he chose to torture her instead. St Peter appeared to her in a vision and healed her wounds. Her eventual death (being rolled over hot coals) was preceded by an earthquake.
