    Grandparent's Names

    Seeing as a lot of people on here seem to like old-fashioned names, I thought it would be interesting to share our grandparent's names, and possibly our great-grandparent's names! Here's mine...

    Grandfather: Malcolm
    Grandmother: Jennifer

    Grandfather: Charles
    Grandmother: Pamela

    Great-grandmother: Florence (Nickname - Flo)

    I've always liked my name(Soren) which has always been rare in America, so rare that I've never met another, but I worry that recent popularity will damage it because namers will abuse it and ignore its roots. I'm named for the first generation immigrant on one of my lines(during the 1860s) and the connection to my roots which it gives me really means something to me. I'd hate to see it spoiled.
