Discovering the source of 'Cappi's' name - Capitola Barr.
The character from The Hidden Hand by E.D.E.N. Southworth, is tomboyish Capitola Le Noir (a.k.a. Capitola Black, Cap Black).

Capitola saw moderate usage as a baby name in the U.S. in the mid-to-late 1800s, thanks to the feisty character. She was introduced to the public in 1859, when The Hidden Hand was first published in the New York Ledger. The story was serialized twice more before being published as a book in 1888, and it was portrayed on stage dozens of times during this era as well.

Was our 'Cappie' a feisty little character?
