So far as I am aware, I was the first person to regularly use the word “hoyden” as part of a net ID, in my .sig block on USENet and various mailing lists as “hoyden about town”, a phrase which I then dusted off to name my blog back in 2005. It warms my heart to see more and more other women online using the word. I feel cromulently embiggened in my soul.
