    Very interesting baby names 1845-1860

    So my mother is really into all of that ancestry.com stuff and she was researching a family tree for a friend of my brothers and she came across a very interestingly named family so I though I'd share with my fellow berries.

    U.S by the way.

    Rosenblum Alonzo
    Pocahontas Aholabama
    Comparacia Aramenta
    Lycurgus Luther "Curg"
    Eugene Ezekiel
    Julius Ferdinand
    Robert Bruce
    Patience Victoria
    Early Devotion Rose

    Crazy right!? My mother and I have determined that the mother of these children was very well-read. Wouldn't you agree?

    Ah, and another interesting name from my great great great grandmother, Icefena. Pronounced ice-uh-fee-na. Her name was spelled all sorts of ways on censuses. Isephina is probably my favorite aesthetically, though.

    Those are some very interesting names! I thought that Lycurgus Luther, Eugene Ezekiel, Julius Ferdinand, and Robert Bruce were lovely. Thanks for sharing!

    Early Devotion Rose is great! haha

    Icefena (I like the Isephina spelling) is gorgeous. Where was she from? I'm really loving it.

    Thanks so much for sharing! I love hearing about interesting names. I agree that Icefena is a really cool name, I too think it looks better spelled out Isephina (and it would help with people trying to pronounce it!)

    Lycurgus Luther is my favorite, although I am not positive how it is pronounced? I wonder if the 'c' is hard or soft? And if the 'g' is hard or soft? I am saying Lie-KUR-gus Luther. Pocahontas, Comparacia, Early Devotion Rose- these are fantastic. Thanks a lot for sharing. I love them.
