Fun FactIt might be hard to believe, but Saint Lucia is the only country in the world named after a woman! That woman is none other than Saint Lucy of Syracuse, a Christian martyr. Named by stranded French sailors and initially colonized by the French, the island was also on-and-off controlled by the British who referred to it as Helen of the West Indies.
