Gems in the family tree
My grandfathers cousin dropped off my paternal family tree and I was delighted to find a few unusual but interesting girls names:
Albertine - love! I know my husband would never agree to use it and it doesn't really go with my daughters name but its my new name crush. Personally I had never heard it before.
Ottofine - not sure I even like it but it intreages me.
Therin - love but would of thought boy, this lady was born in 1841
Elvina - with Eve, Ava and Seraphina growing in popularity this could work, but it's not one I'd use
Dorothea (b 1836) and Doretha (1855) and Doris (1913) perhaps a family name that was ajusted to suit current fashion?
Any gems in your family tree?

You have such interesting families! On the rare occasion my ancestors weren't calling their kids John, Mary, Elizabeth or Thomas, I found:
Horace & Harold (twins)
Joshua (like Joanna and Joyce, it was apparently amongst the more popular names around the 1700s but I still find it odd on someone born pre-1980)
And an honourary mention to the couple that named their eighth-born son David Benjamin Octavius
Actually my family were so dull in their naming choices that if they decided to use a middle or even a more 'exotic' first name like Charlotte or Edwin- that was a cause for celebration for me
