There she is ... ..... .......

.... with her black apron and bonnet. Ready to go out. I call her Hannah ... now she is waiting for her sisters.

Amish typically choose Biblical first names, or names with a long tradition in the particular family or community.  Examples of common Biblical first names for women are: Mary, Ruth, Sarah, Martha, Hanah and Miriam.

Typical Amish name in Lancaster.

Women and girls wear long dresses that are never shorter than calf length. 
The dresses may be in a variety of solid colors depending on the individual community, but are always covered with black or white aprons. Now flowerish dresses.  According to Amish dress code, the hair of Amish women and girls must always be covered in public. Women wear white prayer caps, usually made of organza and stiffened with starch. Married women wear dark bonnets over the prayer caps, but in some communities, the outer bonnet is worn only in cold weather.

She is about 10 inch long (25 cm).
