Time for more pageantry! (Pageantry names, that is.)
Thousands of young women, including Jenny Craig (Miss Georgia 1996) and Robin Williams (Miss New Jersey 2001), have competed for the title of Miss USA since the contest was established in 1952.
Going through the Miss USA Delegates Gallery, I noted the following names:
