Salome was a woman who had a window named in her honor in the converted Cathedral of Saint Gorboduc, as added by the conqueror Ishbar (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies; 34).

Inspiration

The name Salome is Hebrew in origin and is derived from Shalom, meaning "peace"[1].  

The most well-known Biblical woman with the name is the one who danced the Dance of the Seven Veils in order to work Herod up to a state where he couldn't deny her anything before making her request, namely the head of John the Baptist.  She has since become a symbol for dangerous female seductiveness[2].

Another person named Salome was described as a follower of Jesus, sometimes identified as the wife of Zebedee, the mother of James and John, two of the Apostles of Jesus[3].
