Beatrice Löwenström from Överenskommelser
is a very good example of a Tomboy
becoming a Spirited Young Lady
(she still has Ladette-like
tendencies). In fact, I guess that was a natural developement. A tomboy would grow up and become a lady, but still, she would not
want to be a meek Proper Lady
. Jo March and Anne Shirley sure should qualify for this trope. Not all Sprited Young Ladies were once tomboys though.
I'm afraid I can only discuss examples, with which I'm familiar. I might return to this trope though.
