What does Amelia mean?

Asked by Wiki User

Absolutely nothing. :D It's a foreign name to them. It's like if someone asked you "What does Goitsemedime mean?" It has a meaning, but you have no idea what it is because it's not part of your culture. A bunch of baby-name sites say that Amelia means "work", and that would be shigoto in Japanese. That's the best I can do. If you were to go to Japan, they would call you Amiria.

Apart from aviation related activities, Amelia pursued a variety of jobs. The occupations varied considerably. She was a nurses" aide in World War I at a Veteran"s Hospital, having qualified at Columbia Presbyterian. some time in the twenties she was employed pre-air again, as an English Teacher and also, of all things a truck driver. she, of course did all sorts of lectures and publicity things for her career advancement, much of this prodded by hubby George Putnam, they had some falling-outs over this- she wanted to get in more flight time, not lecture time, and that is understandable. One can understand that in the thirties (roughly the same period that Amelia was at her peak, Movie actresses often resented so-called personal appearance (not strictly speaking concerts) at the larger theatres even though this allowed for live contact with fans, there was more money to be made actually makig movies..l which is a good analogy Museum flying, so to speak doesn"t go into the Log books for the authorities! so the Aviatrix wore a number of occupational hats. She was not, as far as I know, strictly speaking, an R.N. as if she was the various Nursing organizations would have made a big, err, Hangar Play! she was a nurses aid-after all a non-commissioned officer, however martial, is not a lieutenant. Amy wore many hats, by the way she was a Major (honorary rank) in the Betsy Ross corps- which was obviously a patriotic female society based in Where else- Philadelphia. Fling the banner!

Amelia earhert's favorite food?

I'm not quite sure what it is, but if you think back into the past of American history and look at some of the foods then you might try to find a popular one and take a guess. I've been looking all over for it too but you might want to try a biography about her. It helped me alot and you might find one that says the answer! Accordingly to bios and memories, Amelia Earhart was a delicate eater - who liked however to experiment with food, even trying to "breed" herself - yet as a kid - some her own modifications of vegetables (redishes)... although without much success. In her own book The Fun Of It, she wrote that she in fact can eat every kind of food "but oatmeal".
