The Legend Of Lady Godiva

I have a lot of nicknames for Ghadir. Champ, Jeem, Brown Eyez, Queen, G-Unit, Thuggie G, Teammate,Goddess, Big Booty Cutie (#ChampionBody) and a host of others. The nickname she had before me, has always been "Lady Godiva".  She told me that people used to always ask if she was a DJ so she put Lady in front of Godiva. 

I have never goggled her nickname before. I know what her real names means, it means sound of the stream that leads to a river.(Ghadir). Which is beautiful by the way.  

I was trying to go to her Facebook Fan page earlier and this women came up. I was kinda puzzled and mad that somebody was trying to be like Jeem. Upon reading I see that this woman is from the 11th century. THIS IS GHADIR FROM THE PAST,

Follow me now. About to get on high nerd levels. 

Lady Godiva's name occurs in charters and the Domesday survey, though the spelling varies. The Old English name Godgifu or Godgyfu meant "gift of God". 

Ghadir is a gift to the world from God and you can enjoy her gifts thru her thoughts on her blog. 

Godiva (/ɡəˈdaɪvə/; Old English: Godgifu), known as Lady Godiva, was an 11th-century Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who, according to a legend dating back at least to the 13th century, rode naked through the streets of Coventry in order to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation imposed by her husband on his tenants.

If you like to read the whole legend, you can read it here, It's a great read.
