    Abigail Van Buren (Dear Abby)

    Dear Abby is the name of the notable advice column founded in 1956 by Pauline Phillips under the pen name Abigail Van Buren and carried on today by her daughter, Jeanne Phillips, who now owns the legal rights to the pen name.

    According to Pauline Phillips, she came up with the pen name, Abigail Van Buren, by combining the name of a biblical figure, Abigail in the Book of Samuel, with the last name of former U.S. President Martin Van Buren.
