Marguerite Namara

“You see, my family name is Banks. However, when I began my study of music in Italy, the Italians found that name uneuphonious to their ears and so they christened me Namara, which name I carried with me to America when I made my debut with the Boston Opera Company. I later hyphenated my name with that of my husband, but as I was better known as Marguerite Namara, I returned to it.” — Marguerite Namara (1888-1974)
