    Names From Old Movies!

    I watched an old movie yesterday on AMC that was made in 1954. It was set in the time period from the 1850's when our great and great great grand parent's names were all that. The name of the movie was "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". The fashions made me think about stereotypes and one of the songs in this musical included the lyrics " Someday those Women Folk will have Rights too"! It made me laugh......but our poor Grandma's!

    The brothers were:

    Adam
    Gideon
    Benjamin
    Caleb
    Daniel
    Frank
    Ephraim

    and their Brides were:

    Milly
    Alice
    Dorcas
    Sarah
    Ruth
    Liza
    Martha

    It got me thinking how cool it is that a lot of these names are coming back or have been popular in the past 20 years or are still popular. I really do Love all of these names!

    What are some Old Movie names that you Love?
