1930's Swimsuit Photograph finds a New Home

I picked up this photo this weekend at a sale. I really love finding treasure like this. Isn't she sweet? Young and fit and perhaps showing off her new swimsuit. Her suit dates to the early 1930's, belted, harlequin design on the chest and most likely a wool or wool blend fabric. There are no notes on the back of the black and white snap to give me any clues as to who she is. She looks perfectly poised for a swim or a day at the beach. She now has a place in my library of images and we welcome her to our extended family. Now I just need to give her a name. Mildred, Hallie, Merriweather, hmm, what do you think? Help me give her a name and personality.
