Words we love without qualification

Nancy emailed this around the other day:
“Happy Birthday, Heather!
Just for you, a special word-of-the-day–
regnant\REG-nuhnt\, adjective:
1.   Prevalent; widespread.
2.   Reigning; ruling (usually used following the noun it modifies): a queen regnant.
3.   Exercising authority, rule, or influence.
What a difference a letter makes, eh?”
So, happy birthday, Heather — princess regnant — whom we also love and admire without qualification.
