Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
She was born Ada Byron and later married William King. So her name was Ada King. Later, William King became the Earl of Lovelace, making their titles the Earl and Countess of Lovelace, called Lord and Lady Lovelace, but that was just a title. The surname of the family does not change with the acquisition of a title. That would be like saying that Mr Obama's last name is United States of America.
Common usage lets her be Ada Lovelace, but please accept Ada King or Ada Byron because at least the kids that went to school with me remember her as Ada Byron.
Sanger (often doesn't get the recognition she deserves, i.e. with Pincus showing up on the important people in history quiz while she got snubbed), Hatshepsut (so much more important than Cleopatra), CiXi, Tubman, Parks, Bhutto, Gandhi, Thatcher, Clinton, Merkel, Potter, Austen, Nefertiti, Aisha (wife of Muhammad), Fatima, Khadija, Helena (mother of Constantine), Norsigian, Pocahontas, Sacajewea, Marcos, Rowling, Madonna, etc.
And she was Lord Byron's daughter. There you go.
Maybe accept last name instead.
