2.
A girl name.

One of the only good girls left in the world; she is beautiful both inside and out.

Guys beg for her, and girls envy her.

If you're lucky enough to date her, never leave her or give her reason to. You will never be able to find a girl like her again.

Impossible not to love.
Guy: Man, I saw this girl the other day, and I swear I was captivated for at least 20 min!

Guy Two: Yeah, it must have been an Ethel
