    I do the normal movie credit thing but yesterday while trying to prove something to a family member I found a Thos in the immigration records from 1920 something. I don't know if it's a misprint or an abbreviation of Thomas (my family abbreviates Robert as Robt occasionally) or what.
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire

    That'll definitely be a Thomas I spend half my life sifting through old records and you see a lot of Thos, Wm, Chs, Jno, Rd, Hy, Geo etc. They were so lazy in the old days

    I tend to collect most of my interesting names from old parish & census records and wills (I've got a thing about deciphering old handwriting in the original records, even if they're already transcribed online), overhearing parents yelling at their kids or occasionally from a good old book. I rarely look at film & TV credits, though the Pixar films are always sweet because in the credits they list all the babies born to crew members during production

    I found another good place today...Instagram!

    Children's fashion accounts sometimes post the names. Today I found a picture of sisters named Ira and...Serafima. I died.

    Oh yes, I've spent many an hour on wikipedia looking through obscure European royal families and marvelling at the names they use (sad, I know). But wiki isn't famed for its accuracy and often misses out children or middle names, so I find that thepeerage.com is very good for all things aristocratic.
