Samurai-class women naming customs?

I was wondering if there were any naming customs among women of the samurai class, like the male naming custom of getting one kanji from fathers/grandfathers. My Google-fu (keyword combinations of samurai/bushi women names/naming customs) has turned up nothing, but I'm a bit nitpicky.

Edit: I'm referring particularly to the Meiji, Taisho and Showa periods, but anything from any era can't hurt. :) I'm so sorry I forgot to specify that. *is ashamed*.
