I absolutely love Augustine, Cassius, Elias, Josiah and Justus.
My own dad’s name is Samuel, which I also love, especially as it doesn’t seem much like a “dad” name. Among my friends’ dads, there are many called John, Robert, Richard and Anthony (among others), but my dad is the only Samuel. I like that!

There are some wonderful names on this blog. I love Augustine, Cassius, Cornelius, Elias, Francis and Josiah. I’m not crazy about Clyde and Squire as a first names. Ross is a family name for me. The name of Ingrid Bergman’s father Justus would be pronounced something like “YOO-stoos” rather than like the English word Justice.

Cassius and Clyde are awesome. Elias is nice.

Another notable father is Otto Frank (father of Anne Frank). I think with the whole O-name trend lately, Otto definitely deserves another look.

My father’s name is Eldon George. A name you don’t hear too much. He was named after his mother Elda and father George.

I like the surnames and middles that weren’t in the spotlight in this blog post! Waring and Morrison are just awesome, in my opinion Happy Father’s Day!

Really interesting! Some great names – I adore Augustine, Elias, Josiah, Francis, and Clyde for example.
Love that bounceparty mentioned Otto Frank; Otto is a great choice.
