A Woman in a Boat

There’s a woman in a boat, on a lake, wearing a coat.
If you want to know her name, it’s in the riddle I just wrote.

What’s the woman’s name?

“Theresa” is the woman’s name. (There’s a = Theresa)

An alternative answer is “There”.

A better answer is Nina, because it can be found in “womaN IN A boat”

Ona Lake makes more sense
(on a lake)

The reason “there” works a little better is because you can replace it with a woman’s name and it still makes sense. “Hilda is a woman on a boat”. You can’t do that with nina or ona lake.

Additional answer is that her name is “in the riddle I just wrote”. If you can use something stupid like “there” you can use this too.

Thanks for the comments. Theresa is much better than there. I’ve updated the riddle!

This is beyond dumb. I get that in terms of spelling theresa works but phonetically it fails. Very poor riddle. If you tell someone a riddle they should be able to work it out with either knowing the object (the candle riddle for example) or they have to get the phonetics for hidden word riddles.

Anna Lake is far better than Theresa.
Let’s vary things slightly to clarify my point.

1. There is a woman on a boat, Anna BLake wearing a coat.

2. There is a woman on a boat, Betty Boop wearing a coat.

Just the way I see hear it of course.

That answer is wrong as the riddle was incorrectly written – The correct way that this is to be written out is There Is a woman in a boat, on a lake, wearing a coat.
If you want to know her name, it’s in the riddle I just wrote.

What’s the woman’s name?

NOT THERE”S, that is why the answer is not making any sense.

The answer to the riddle is NOT TERESA

It is THERE the woman’s name is There
