Maryam d’Abo is an English actress. She is known for her role as the Bond girl Kara Milovy in The Living Daylights. Maryam is the daughter of Nino (Kvinitadze) and Peter Claude Holland d’Abo. Her cousin is singer Mike d’Abo.

Maryam’s patrilineal line can be traced back to Johannes Åbo, who was born, c. 1615, in Aarhus, Denmark. The name is derived from the Danish village Åbo.

Maryam’s paternal grandfather was Gérard Louis d’Abo (the son of Henry William Leonard d’Abo and Emily Francis Burton). Henry was the son of Gerard Louis d’Abo, who was born in Surakarta, Surakarta City, Central Java, Indonesia, and of Geertruida Jacoba Eduardine Kulenkamp Lemmers, who was born in Culemborg, the Netherlands. Emily was the daughter of Frederick Burton and Kate Chawnor.

Maryam’s paternal grandmother was Muriel Molesworth Kindersley (the daughter of Edward Nassau Molesworth Kindersley and Ada Good Murray). Edward was born in the United Kingdom, the son of Nathaniel William Kindersley and Mary Molesworth. Ada was born in St John’s Wood, England, the daughter of John Murray.

Maryam’s maternal grandparents were Giorgi Ivanovich Kvinitadze (born Chikovani), a Georgian military commander (the son of Ivan Semyonovich Kvinitadze), and Mariam Makashvili, a Georgian princess. Giorgi and Mariam were both born in Georgia.

Giorgi’s father was Ivan Semyonovich Kvinitadze. This is at least the Russian version of his name, since I don’t speak nor can I read Gerogian.
