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”.

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.

Miss use of comma’s and appostrophe. Should be There, is a woman … I realize that ruins the humor, but who cares?

Until the riddle is asked the right way, there is bound to be some varying responses.

From most popular searches, It is supposed to be: There is a woman in a boat, on a lake, wearing a coat.

Knowing her name according to the riddle is in reference to the riddle itself.

In answering, go straight to the noun or subject position of the statement, ask yourself this question: Who is a woman in a boat, on a lake, wearing a coat? You’ll see an answer…it doesn’t really matter if the answer isn’t your regular name type or suggestion.

You can decide to keep that first word of the riddle unknown or as “dash-meaning empty” then you read the preceding words after which you come back to fill the blank space with a word IN the riddle that pops up in your mind as most suitable for an answer, here you’ll discover its the same word “THERE”

Strongly, I believe it is a matter or the part of speech and necessarily not stereotypes of names. A lot people are saying THERESA because it’s known as a name, and we disagree to “THERE” as a possible answer forgetting that the answer is to be found in the riddle itself. Tell me please, Is there any such word as THERESA in the riddle? Do you now have an answer?
Love y’all.

Ona Ina Theresa

It is Theresa ” on a” does not = Anna. Ona and Ina are not names and it is said the answer is in the riddle they just wrote so you cant use the sounds you need to use the written letters to find a name. I could possibly be Nina because that can also be found in the written letters.

You are mistaken, Matt. Ina IS a name. Check it out:

I’m sorry but, I can’t agree with that answer like most of the people are telling you that’s just stupid. The real answer is Anna lake. Think about it. Read it again. Anna Lake, is wearing a coat.

This poem was meant to be heard not read. The answer is “Anna lake”. But when you write it out it loses something in the translation. (Anna Lake is wearing a coat…)

If you want to know her name, it’s “Indie Riddle”
Indie Riddle is the answer
