In Huck Finn, what is Miss Watson's first name?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Twain does not give Miss Watson's first name in Huck Finn.  Because Huck is the narrator, he refers to her as Miss Watson throughout the novel because that is what he addresses her as.  Jim does call her "Old Missus," but other than that, she is referred to as Miss Watson only.
