I finished The Big Con by David Maurer, the book I was talking about in my last post. Look at these entries from the glossary:
The countess: Mrs. Maurer. Also the Raggle.
How sweet is that?? (“Raggle” is later defined as “an attractive young girl.”)
There was also this which, as a word origin geek, I thought was cool:
Gun moll. A thief-girl, especially a female pickpocket. The term has no connection with guns or with killing–as is sometimes suggested in the newspapers–but comes from Yiddish gonif, thief.
