Bond Girls Pt. 1

Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder in "Dr. No"
Although Bond Girls are unfortunately portrayed as little more than sexual objects, I have to say that I love them and their ridiculous names.
My favorite name out of all them is probably Eve Moneypenny (and yes, you can fight me about whether or not she really is a "Bond girl"), or Vesper Lynd.
